Does hyper threading require matched memory

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?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
