Speccy says Hyperthreading: Supported, Disabled

Wouldn't surprise me if it were accurate, if confusing wording. The chip itself may be capable of hyperthreading but locked out of actually doing it after the fact by intel

Your i5 could have been a badly fabricated i7

Yeah, nothing is wrong with Speccy... it's probably reading the info directly from the chip, and they've been known to take a failed quad core, disable the two failed cores and then sell it as a dual core, so why not have Hyperthreading disabled?

That's what came up with a search for "speccy reads i5 hyperthreading".

So either it's "disabled" by the manufacturer or it's poor wording (on speccy's part) to say that Support for hyperthreading is not there.


Either way, that's a thread from 2011 and it's still there so it must not be a bug.
