Intel preps wider Hyper-Threading line
Intel first introduced Hyper-Threading technology in its Pentium 4 3.06GHz processor back in November
of last year. Since then, only Intel's fastest Pentium 4 has supported the technology, but that's about to change. According to this story
over at The Inquirer, Intel will launch 2.4, 2.6, and 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processors with Hyper-Threading technology next month.
Many enthusiasts have been waiting for Hyper-Threading to trickle down Intel's processor line since the technology was unveiled, so the move is long overdue. As Hyper-Threading inches towards the mainstream, we may see more developers take advantage of multithreading, too.
