Editor's comments:
  • Hyper-threading is a technique developed by Intel to double the performance of the CPU cores; a dual-core processor with hyper-threading has the performance throughput of 4 virtual cores.
  • The idea of hyper-threading comes from the multithreading concept of computer science.
