The Intel Hyper-Threading Technology or the Intel  HT Technology utilizes the processor resources capably and allows the threads to operate on the cores simultaneously. When it comes to the performance level, Intel HT Technology insert the processor output to enhance the global performance on a threaded software.

The Intel HT Technology is obtainable on older generations of Intel® Core™ processors, the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, and the Intel® Xeon® processor family. When you mix the Intel® processors and Chipset with a supported Operating System and BIOS, you can do the following:

  • Utilize persistent applications at the same time while sustaining the systems's reaction.
  • Make the system secured, proficient and easy to manage while reducing the effect on productivity.
  • Gives a headroom for the latest business development and innovative solution competencies.

The Performance may change based on a particular hardware and software usage. Check your computer's manufacturer for the particular configurations and performance.

             Hyper-threading of Intel’s processors functions in the way that some sections of the processor is duplicated, specifically the architectural state. It is important to note that in this process, the main executions resources are not duplicated. This duplication enables the operating system in scheduling of two threads, which also means processing tasks simultaneously. In simpler terms, it just utilizes that those resources that are supposed to be idle, and maximizing the performance level of your system.

 
              As compared to the known simultaneous multithreading of Pentium 4, hyper-threading improves the performance of the system by 30%. The effect of this method is evident when running applications. You can observe that the execution time is reduced and the application runs faster.

Hyper Threading Tech of Intel’s Processor

Hyper-Threading or just “HT” is a kind of technology used by several Intel microprocessors that lets a single processor act like two individual processors to the applications and operating systems that use it. It is one of the features of Intel’s “IA-32” processor architecture. With Hyper-Threading, the “core” processor of a microprocessor can execute two simultaneous streams or threads of instructions instead of one sent by the operating system.

With two streams or threads of execution units to work on, this allows more work to be done by the processor for every clock cycle. On the operating system like Microsoft Windows, a Hyper-Threading processor looks like two separate processors.

Since most of today’s operating systems like Linux and Microsoft Windows have the capacity to split their work load among multiple processors, also called SMP or Symmetric MultiProcessing, the operating system just acts as if the Hyper-Threading processor is a pool of two processors.
