    Just found this at the inquirer:

    "Intel's chipset partners ATI and SIS, plus the renegade Pentium 4 chipset maker Via will have little to offer in the way of hyperthreading enabled chipsets in the future."


    "The roadmaps show that at launch time, the 850E Intel's Rambus chipset, the 845PE, the 845GE and the 845GV will all support hyperthreading."

    seems like there was hidden support for it in the CPUs for some time now.

    "Hyper-Threading On Intel P4 2.4B:
    VR-Zone has managed to enable Hyper-Threading on P4 2.4BGhz just one day before the launch of the P4 3.06Ghz HT CPU. This has proven that HT has been present in the Northwood processors for quite some time but was disabled by the BIOS."

    Hmm...Hyperthreading has been in the core of the P4 since way back in the Willamete days. But from everything I read and heard, it had be "blocked" or turned off not by the BIOS, but in the manufacturing process.
    Where's my drink?
