Hyper threading is when programs or applications is broken into different threads and then processed
This can be done in two ways, by breaking the application at the software level or at the hardware level.
The latter one is which ur processor uses.
It enables better use of cpu time and hence better performance.

the reason amd cpus do not have ht is because ht was brought out by intel to be more capable of multi tasking. Amd's multi taks very well but only intel cpus with ht can cope with that and compete with that. If it was amd where they were the bad multi taskers they would make up something but call it something else
