hyperthreading=two cpu's as far as windows and linux are concerned

 

try disabling hyperthreading in the bios and reboot, boom only one cpu appears

 

cheers

windows is correctly reporting that there are 'two' cpu's

linux does the EXACT same thing (install a modern distro on that box and you'll get the SMP kernel by default, smp= Symmetric Multiprocessing )

 

if you want to know if it runs at double the speed of 'one' cpu then do a benchmark, or better yet, google for Hyperthreading Performance

 

this is not a windows issue at all,

its not gonna run at twice the speed. using linux in our weather models we get around a 30% performance gain with HT on using the 2.6 kernel. So it is some gain but not twice.

 

Basically HT allows the CPU to do two commands per clock cycle so it seems it as two cpu's
