HyperThreading in desktops soon.
Posted on: 07/26/2002 05:08 PM

Intel's MHz march continues onward. Well, that's according to this article at The Inquirer.
...Intel will introduce hyperthreading in desktop CPUs at speeds of 3.06GHz and bove. While Intel will also introduce a 3.20GHz Pentium 4 in Q2 of next year.
Interesting. I wonder if the current crop of 533MHz FSB uniprocessor boards will be able to accept a BIOS update to support HyperThreading. Regardless, it sounds like uniprocessor machines will be much smoother to do lower end workstation tasks on. Is this the death knell for the budget 'true' SMP system? Read the article right here.
