VIA P4X400 also supports Hyper-Threading

| Posted: Dec 22, 2002 7:53 am

VIA cannot be left out of the buzz-word phenomenon as French website Impact Hardware discovered where VIA's P4X400 chipset also supports Hyper-Threading (HT) - the art of making a single Pentium 4 processor appear as two.

 

Apparently, HT support was only going to be implemented in the upcoming P4X400A next year. However, I can confirm for you all that HT does in fact already exist - our local VIA rep just confirmed it for us over ICQ.

 

Indeed, I am in this moment bursting me with a mother chart Shuttle AV49N which is based on chipset P4X400 of VIA...

 

During my tests, I had fun to use it with Pentium 4 3.06GHz supporting HyperThreading technology. Which was not my surprise when under Windows XP, I could see that two processors were detected...

 

After having made a turn in Bios, I realized that the HyperThreading option was desactivable, proof that I did not have the berlue!
