No. It's not built in. Only the i7's and i3's have hyperthreading.

how much will it affect on performance?
Oct 17, 2012, 2:12 AM
Games... 0%... actually HT on average decreases performance by 1% - 2%.
For programs designed to use HT, it depends on how well it is implemented. It can vary anywhere between 10% - 40%.

can you give example of that kind of application that uses hyper theadeing extensively?
Oct 17, 2012, 4:09 AM
Programs that can use HT if it has been designed to do so.
Video encoding, 3D Rendering, image processing (i.e. photoshop), massive databases, financial and scientific modelling, file compression programs.
