Intel's Secret Weapon: Core Multiplexing Technology or Hyper-Threading Reversed
A couple of month ago AMD was rumoured to be developing a "reversed multi-threading technology" that could enable multi-way CPUs to work as virtual single-way processors for those applications that couldn't optimally support their normal state.
While AMD didn't confirm these rumours, there aroused new rumours of Intel developing the same. At XtremeSystems they found out that a new BIOS version for Intel 975X based motherboards includes the Core Multiplexing Technology (CMT) option:
Judging by its name, they decided it was that "reversed" Hyper-Threading.
If Core 2 Duo already supports CMT, then why Intel has been keeping silence? Maybe not to confuse users believing that the more cores, the better.
