Moreover, this work evaluates the 3D Wavelet Transform Encoder on a Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) architecture like Intel's processors with HyperThreading
These cores are modified Power4 cores, in that they have had simultaneous hyperthreading
support added to them.
IDC believes that higher desktop processor ASPs enabled by HyperThreading
technology and the new 800MHz front-side bus as well as mobile PC processor unit shipments and the higher ASPs of those units helped to compensate for modestly lower desktop PC processor unit shipments.
technology has been used in Xeon servers for some time but this is the first time it has been used in home PCs.
Combined with ever faster microprocessors, partly fuelled by innovations such as Hyperthreading
, which enables instructions to be executed in parallel, PCs based on these technologies will be an enticing prospect for some business and engineering users, particularly those that perform data intensive tasks.
The Core i7 platform, with Intel's Hyperthreading
Technology, enables application developers to take full advantage of the dual-core/four thread parallel processing capabilities, resulting in high power processing with low power consumption.
If they came processors support hyperthreading
, it needs to be supplied with units in the BIOS to turn off.
