    A visual demonstration/explanation of Hyper Threading vs. Dual-Core, and then combined. Intel has used both in various chips. None of the Intel-based Macs use HyperThreading (HT) that I know of, but the Core Duo chips use Dual-Core technology. This affects anyone using an Intel-based Mac. In the future, perhaps we will see both technologies used in Intel-based Macs.

    I doubt HT will do the Core line of processors any good.

    HT was originally coined to make up for the long pipelines in the original Pentium 4 design. That really was a disadvantage!
