Ht Question


Recommended Posts

Would turning off the Hyper-Threading enable me to game with more power?I've noticed that games never ask for more than 50% cpu usage.

hyperthreding decreases single aplication proformance a tad.. but when multy-tasking.. like seti and folding.. its a good idea keeping it on.. because hyerthreding manigest the cpu usage for each program and alows "too" streams of data insted of one.. so the cpu can do more at the gain of better multytaskin, but is at a loss in RAW proformance.. Not by much though :P

i have HT on 24/7 .... so hope this explains it to you a bit more!!

I'll just leave it on then.Thanks for the advice.I've got seti and folding going anyway(don't have my folding tag because I have a space in my name:{)

Well if your trying to run Seti and Folding w/o HT it won't ever work... because they will fight each other for the cpu... so your fine at HT..

 

BTW stop doing Seti and dedicate your machine to Folding.. :)
