How effective is hyperthreading for multi-tasking? I'm not talking about extreme multi tasking, but things like encoding songs while playing wow. How effective will it be? IE, how much of a performance boost will hyperthreading offer?
Do you mean that hyperthreading won't work for just general multitasking? For example, how about if i have limewire running, encoding with itunes, and also watching a dvd on wmp at the same time. Will a hyperthreaded processor be able to encode the songs significantly faster than the non hyperthreaded processor?
