Does hyper threading require matched memory Tags: Chipsets HP Laptop Dual Core Memory Motherboards Last response: March 27, 2012 3:41 PM in Motherboards Share klenet66 March 27, 2012 3:30:35 PM I have an hp laptop. Shows 4 cores with a dual core machine. I purchased 2 4 gig chips for a matched pair. The 4 cores that show in the os, does that indicated that hyper threading is enabled? More about : hyper threading require matched memory bucknutty a b V Motherboard March 27, 2012 3:40:34 PM The ram and the CPU are independent of each other. Hyperthreading does not care about the type or amount of ram you have. A dual core cpu will show as 4 cores in the device manager if HT is on. This is because each core can do 2 threads at once, so the operating system treats it the same as a 4 core CPU. "Control panel" then "system" should show you how much ram you have. m 0 l COLGeek a b } Memory a c 218 V Motherboard March 27, 2012 3:41:07 PM Yes. HT is a CPU function and not a memory function. So, adding memory has nothing to do with whether the CPU supports HT. Sounds like you are good to go as configured. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
