Configuring CPU Hyper-Threading

Hyper-Threading improves parallelization of computations (doing multiple tasks at once) performed on x86 microprocessors. Although a single-thread chip can process thousands of instructions per second, only one instruction can be performed at a time. Hyper-Threading allows multi-thread processing at the same time, improving chip performance.

You can enable or disable Hyper-threading on the BIOS:
? Romley platform BIOS: Advanced->advanced processor->Intel HT Technology
? Grantley platform BIOS: Advanced -> Intel RC Group -> Processor Configuration -> Hyper-Threading [ALL]
? Brickland platform BIOS: IntelRCSetup�?Processor Configuration�?Hyper-Threading [ALL]
