PreservedSwine is still being judged by the masses

Default Hyperthreading make much of a difference on Intel plaforms?

Just ordered a new Intel rig, and am looking forward to "Hyperthreading." How would an Intel P4 rig running about 3Ghz compare w/ an XP running about 2.2 Ghz when it comes to folding?

Origin is still being judged by the masses


Well, Curio runs some really mean Athlon machines, perhaps he can shed some light on XP performance.

I've got a P4 2.4C running two instances via HyperThreading. So do some of the other folks around here. HT really helps since if you run one instance at 100% cpu utilization via client.cfg, task manager would show the system running at 50%. Running two instances does not double the output, but gives you something like 1.5 times the throughput of non-HT CPU.

Between the two of them, probably P4 HT @3GHz will produce more than a single XP @2.2GHz - that's my guess.
