This is Intel's game. Sell downgraded CPUs and make up the difference in marketing demand with excessive Intel Hype ..
Since when does Intel have SMT? I thought it was: Intel: Hyperthreading = HT AMD: Simultaneous Multi Threading = SMT
SMT is the generic name for it, and encompasses all implementations, including the one Intel called HT.
It's funny to see Core iX-8XXX CPUs with the Kaby Lake architecture on mobile, while having Coffee Lake on Desktop. And yet, they increased the core count for the mobile Kaby Lake. I bet Kaby Lake-R runs on the same chipset as Kaby Lake. Just shows how much Intel ripped off consumers with the 300 series chipset...
Downgraded i3 + SPECTRE / Meltdown bug = what performance is left and what else to appreciate with this???
SORRY intel no offense here but, thats wut netizens think about your products now a days and u make it worse by releasing f#@cked up fixes for spectre and meltdown.
This CSPU is DOA. 2 cores to contend with Meltdown CPU flaw slowdowns. Requires a new motherboard.
The only good thing about this CPU is that you'll definitely notice when you've been hacked to mine cryptocurrency for someone else as nothing will work.
It's a mobile chip, so no worries about new motherboards. Inspectre is a pretty good checker for your Meltdown status. For home users, Meltdown and Spectre are pretty much non-issues. https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm
Intel can call it whatever they want but it still SMT in industry terms used by all vendors, be it AMD, Intel, IBM or anyone else. HT is only Intel term for their specific SMT implementation.
