So I have the new (early 2011) MBP 17" with the 2.2 GHz core i7 in it. It's supposed to hyperthread, and have 8 threads, right? I'm using the MenuMeters menubar applet to monitor the CPU, and it shows 8 threads for the CPU. However, only 4 of the threads (1,3,5, and 7) ever show any load at all. I have tried putting a fairly heavy load on the machine. So my question is, is there something I need to do to enable hyperthreading? Am I doing anything wrong? Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks!
