Intel confirms HyperThreading is going away

Posted on Tuesday, March 07 2006 @ 09:00:20 CET by

Intel's Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner said today that Hyperthreading is on its last legs as multi-core processors come in.
Intel is pushing multicores as a future technology introducing a Tera Scale programme to encourage developers to write to dual and multicores. Intel does this sort of thing, said Rattner.

We predicted this would happen quite a while ago. Rattner told an audience of international hacks that multicores required new applications re-written for multipliers. Indeed, we believe we never understood hyped threading when Intel first launched it. Intel seemed reluctant to tell us which apps would benefit from HT apart from Microsoft Office.
