is this a factory built machine like dell or something?
What are the specs of the machine

well when i was testing from 3dmark05
it saids it supports HT
my specs are p4 2.4G currently OC to 2.9G FSB533
512mb (2x256) pc3200 running at ddr333
g4 ti4600 overclocked
thermaltake purepower 420W silent psu
ecs 648fx-a mobo
this is my specs
so how do i enable HT?

There should be a setting in your cmos / Bios setup that will enable/disable hyperthreading for the P4. I thought only the 3.06 Ghz/533 FSB had hyperthreading, Changes ? P4- 2.4C + has hyperthreading/800 FSB.
Any who,, When is Intel going to support Multi threading ( more than two threads)
Oh,,,When they a get a license from the Japanese fisherman,, thats right ,,,lol
and dont forget AMD as well..............
Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with HT Technology Extreme Edition
800 MHz system bus: 3.40 GHz, 3.20 GHz
Intel® Pentium 4 processors supporting HT Technology
800 MHz system bus: 3.40E†† GHz, 3.40 GHz, 3.20E GHz, 3.20 GHz, 3E GHz, 3, 2.80E GHz, 2.80C GHz, 2.60C GHz, 2.40C GHz
533 MHz system bus: 3.06 GHz
Mobile Intel® Pentium 4 processors supporting HT Technology
533 MHz system bus: 3.20 GHz, 3.06 GHz, 2.80 GHz, 2.66 GHz
any who Hooray for those E's
Its the core specifications talking, its not configured in the CPU, though.
Lookey here,,, Mobile 2.66GHz HT,, wow wee,,,I missed that group , oops!!

533 fsb processors don't support HT, the overclocking might be fooling 3d mark into thinking it does
EDIT no you edited

hm...that might be true headband
my fsb is 162 right now
so 162x4 is..... 648 FSB...which is way higher than 533
anyway yea i dont think my cpu supports HT so nvm lol
plus only few programs support HT

Are you sure the 3d mark program isnt telling you that the "motherboard" supports HT?
Ive got a ECS 848P-A Version 2.0 motherboard and it supports HT but I had to get a P4 2.4 GHz cpu that is HT, for it to actually show 2 processors in device manager.
There's P4, P4 Celeron and of course P4 HT cpu's.

Lots of 533FSB support HT,, check the link I left ,,,,lol

I think you have to say "Hyperthread Go!" in your best superhero voice when you turn the PC on.My computer is bigger than yours!

I have a 3.0 GHz 800FSB P4, hyper threading is ENABLED by default correct?
November 2nd, 2004, 03:18 PM #15Originally Posted by Regulus
and i believe HT is disabled by defaultHey who turned sigs on?
November 2nd, 2004, 03:24 PM #16
So then even though in task manager under performance, it shows 2 cpu's, hyper threading isn't enabled??
November 2nd, 2004, 03:34 PM #17
if it shows 2 it is enabled but i have always had to enable it...you may have without knowing by loading optimal dettings or something of that natureHey who turned sigs on?

I recall from the first day of installing I didn't touch the BIOS and it showed 2 cpu's, so I guess it was enabled on my board. Just checkin!

I went from a 2.4 ghz p4 to 3.2p4 w/800 mhz fsb... wasnt really impressed with the difference. My meters on windows default to two cpu's on installation. Does anyone have any lag issues with the HT?

-small amount of RAM/not enough RAM
-too much crap on your PC
Anyway, yo give you more info post the rest of your specs (esp. RAM)
