Is this the FIRST cpu (3.06) that will allow hyper-threading? Or is it the chipset that determines the possiblity for this new feature. For Example: I've seen several sites offering the Asus P4PE with the 2.53 or 2.66 P4 claiming it supports hyper-threading. Does this mean I need to wait for the 3.06 to get this feature???
thanks

I am not sure of this answer. I believe though that the Xeon processors support hyperthreading and perhaps those were the boards you saw at the slower speeds. I could be wrong though. My tech knowledge is not as current as it used to be.

I seem to spend all my time with code. I have to glean what I can from editing reviews and what I catch here in the forums.

The P4PE supports Hyper-Threading, and it is the 845PE/GE chipsets are the only ones Intel recommends for Hyper-Threading CPUs. The first Hyper-Threading CPU (and only, at this point) is the 3.06. You must also have an OS that supports Hyper-Threading (WinXP).

This is the new HT logo:

So if a new system has this logo on it instead of the old P4 logo, it has a chipset that supports HT.

so what would u chose the 3 or the 2.8? does ht do that much more for being almost double the price of the 2.8? o and a side note when asus says the p4s8x supports 2.56 and higher does that mean it supports the 2.8? and which motherboard do you think is better the p4pe or the p4s8x?

the p4s8x surports all p4 478 pin cpu up to 3.2 thats when the .090nm change happens all bets are off then,it dont surport ht but it still take a 3.06 or higer,the p4s8x-x doas this board is hard to find,any way there is not a big differance in the 2.8-3.06 cpu performance,but there is price wise,the 2.53 is the best bet take the extra money any spend it on a pair of nice hard drives in raid 0,a 9700 pro a good cooler,bump it to 2.75 ghz and some 2t ram say 512mb and your kick the crap out of any 3.06 ht or no ht,500 bucks is a lot of money to save,fast chips dont make fast machines,they only help!
