Intel's future Hyper-Threading and memory plans
Intel's Developer Forum has come and gone, and AnandTech has a good wrap-up
of Intel's Hyper-Threading and plans for future memory support, which much to our dismay, still includes RDRAM at the very high end. The article points out that adding Hyper-Threading to a processor only adds about 5% to the die, which makes it a much more economical way to increase performance than simply throwing on gobs of cache. Rest assured we'll figure out just how much of a performance boost you'll get from Hyper-Threading, in which applications, and under what circumstances as soon as we get our hands on a processor that can do it.
