Intel claims hyperthreading produces 900%+ boost

SHARP EYED contributor to Ace's Hardware Forum has noticed that Intel is making some truly remarkable claims for the 3.06GHz Pentium 4. A demo on its site – it requires Flash to view – compares a spreadsheet calculation. That takes five minutes 39.9 seconds on a 3.06GHz Pentium 4 without hyperthreading while with hyperthreading, Intel claims it takes 35.58 seconds.

This is a remarkable feat and leads us to believe that hyperthreading is better than anyone could possibly have anticipated. Indeed, with the performance of your processor boosted by over 900%, truly no-one should be without one.
