Which is better:QUAD CORE VS DUAL CORE with hyper-threading?

Just now, ArkTheYO said:

Okay Thanks A lot all! 

@littlepigboy5 @moderategamer @TheRandomness @typographie

But i am actually looking for some in-depth knowledge about core-functionality and hyperthreading

ok, then go check out techquickie's video, it helped me out a lot. :)

Hey it may sound like a silly question but yeah the main aim of the question is to learn more or in depth knowledge of core-functionality and Intel's hyper-threading!

Thanks a lot!

Quad core. Hyperthreading speeds up the flow of information to the two physical cores, they aren't actual cores.

real cores will always be better than hyper threads that's not to say a dual core with hyper threading couldn't out perform a quad core at a certain application if it was a really great dual core against a really terrible quad core it could happen just depends on the actual chips being used.

check out techquickies vid on hyper threading, it's really useful.  Basically hyperthreading simulates a core by allocating "performance" from one core and creating a virtual core, while the "performance" can be spared.  a dual core with hyperthreading is still a dual-core, but if you are doing multiple simple tasks, hyperthreading allows for the stress to be more evenly distributed and handled more efficiently.


I can help with programming and hardware.
