Disabling hyper-threading on Acer IPISB-VR Tags: Motherboards Acer Intel Last response: November 8, 2012 1:58 PM in Motherboards Share syrian9 May 7, 2012 4:03:29 PM Hello, I have a new Gateway FX6860-UR20P and I can't seem to figure out how to disable hyper-threading, if that is even possible on this motherboard. Core i7-2600 3.4GHz Acer IPISB-VR REV 1.01 System BIOS Version P01-B2 Build Date 8/9/2011 The Advanced Chipset Configuration menu in the BIOS shows: Intel EIST Intel Turbo Boost (only shows up when EIST is enabled) Intel AES-NI Intel XD Bit Intel VT I have disabled every option, and Linux's "top" still reports 8 active cores running when I launch 8 busy processes. Is this option just not available in new Core i7s, or does this particular motherboard not support disabling hyper-threading, or something else? Any help would be appreciated.

All OEM BIOS's have pretty much every useful feature disabled. If you need to disable it, I would suggest buying a new MB and transferring all the other hardware over to it. Out of Curiosity... Why do you want / need to disable it? m 0 l 2ndlevelpro November 8, 2012 1:58:52 PM itzdanielp said:Gateway probably has that option disabled in their strongly neutered BIOS.
