3ds Max also shows impressive improvements with Hyper-Threading. The only other way to get the additional performance you see here would probably be through accelerating clock speeds significantly.
With only a single core in use, Hyper-Threading can be left on or off. It doesn’t matter. However, let’s look at the multi-threaded results of this benchmark.
The multi-threaded version of the Cinebench 11.5 benchmark shows great performance jumps when Hyper-Threading is enabled.
Photoshop CS4 scales nicely with each physical core added. However, Hyper-Threading doesn't do much for our thread-intensive workload.
Fritz chess is perfect to show what Hyper-Threading can do in a best case scenario. More logical cores translate into additional performance.
