Intel might have been made a little nervous and hot under the collar by a story over at The INQ which suggests AMD could legally produce a Hyper-Threading processor in line with a patent they created back in 1999.

OVER AT THE US trademark and patent office, there's a slightly elderly patent successfully filed by AMD back in 1999 which indicates that the firm could provide hyperthreading for its processors, if it should so wish.

The patent, numbered 5,944,816, entitled "Microprocessor configured to execute multiple threads including interrupt service routines", outlines how a CPU can execute multiple threads concurrently.
