Sandy Bridge will limit hyperthreading to Core i7 series

Posted on Thursday, August 26 2010 @ 13:56:49 CEST by

FUD Zilla reports Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge series will only feature hyperthreading in the Core i7 lineup:
Hypertreds don’t do that much but they do show you that you have „eight cores“ in Windows task manager and you will only see eight threads with top Core i7 CPUs.

Core i5 CPUs will be a native quad-core CPUs but they won’t support hyperthreading. This will be exclusively reserved for Core i7 2000 series parts. Core i3 native dual-cores will only support two treads which is step down from current Core i3 CPUs that feature two cores and support four threads.

The trend of lack of Turbo support in Core i3 generation will continue with new Sandy Bridge based Core i3 2000 series CPUs.
