Windows-Based Servers and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology

Intel’s Hyper-Threading Technology allows a single physical processor to execute multiple threads (instruction streams) simultaneously, potentially providing greater throughput and improved performance. Intel will introduce Hyper-Threading Technology in their Intel Xeon processor family for servers in the first quarter of 2002. This article provides an overview of how the Windows Server operating system works with Intel Hyper-Threading technology. It explains the implications for performance, compatibility, and licensing.
