Your threads title is a bit misleading. Hyper Transport is AMDs IMC. Hyper Threading is something where a single CPU core can process two threads at the same time.

If the program is optimized for it, it can increase performance usually 20%, but not always.

Looking at your other posts it would appear you are taking a computer architecture class and have some hard homework questions, that right?

We aren't going to do your homework for you, but if you want to learn more than they cover in class that we can help you with. Wikipedia will also help with your homework.
