Pentium 4 hyper threading???

Okay, I have this old Pentium 4... and when i look in the system menu, it says that its a pentium 4 @ 2.00 GHz, 2.02 GHz..... Does this mean that it has got hyper-threading? I havent gotten as far as using CPU-z on the machine, yet, so u dont have to tell me that. :p

  1. Best answer
    Hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc, and look at performance tab, if it has 2 column on CPU usage history it means it has hyper threading, but if it's one then it doesn't have hyper threading.
    But 2.0GHz P4 i can 95% say it has no hyper threading...
  2. And I can 100% say it does not have hyperthreading. The slowest P4 with hyperthreading is a 2.4GHz northwood.

  4. Ok thanks guys...It has only 1 column. But still, why does it say 2.00 GHz, 2.02 GHz?? :p
  5. Doesn't matter, the 20MHz won't do any difference
    But that's a calculation by computer, the actual speed is FSB times multiplier and FSB fluctuates by a small margin that cause the extra 20MHz
