I don't know if many of you know this, I may be recycling old news, so if so, let me know. I think most of you pro AMD people will enjoy this. I was reading a magazine article entitled "Hyper Threading Not For Everyone." It stated while hyper threading can be useful, it can actually slow down your gaming performance. I guess this is so because it splits up it's speed or something even when you are running one app! I was teetering twoards the Intel side until I heard htis bit of info. The magazine even went as far as to disable hyperthreading when doing benchmarks vs. AMD, btw AMD won most gaming benchmarks! Don't get all pissed at me I'm not trying to start an argument, I'm just really pro AMD when it comes to gaming because of their performance and value, the benchmarks don't lie!
