Intel's 65 nm Process Breathes Fire into Double-Core Extreme Edition

The Hyper Threading Custom Was Retained

As with all previous Extreme Edition processors, Hyper Threading technology is supported. However, this feature that pretends to be two processor cores where only one is available isn't necessarily a benefit, because many applications actually slow down with HT enabled. Most motherboards allow for disabling HT, which we would recommend in most cases unless you would run software that actually takes advantage of it.
