8 threads from 2 cores?

"Joining the 750s will be as-yet-unnumbered 3.2GHz, 3.33GHz and 3.46GHz i5s which contain only two cores, though HyperThreading technology - absent from the first i5 - will present eight cores to the host OS. All three will contain 4MB of L3 cache."

Unless Intel is doing 4 hyperthreads/core, I think that's going to be four cores (or threads) not eight.

COuld be 8 threads on 2 cores

The Alpha was supposed to get 4 threads on a core when they designed the SMT system intel later took over (after getting hold of alpha from compaq in a settlement). It would be about time intel managed to fully implement it. If you look up the alpha 21464 you will find some info on the use of SMT they were planning.

I guess that's ultramegahyperthreading.
