Intel hyper threading vs AMD's two cores. Their 8 core CPU is very similar to 4 dual core chips put together, the second core acts a little like hyper threading. With a faster second core, it increases the speed of multithreaded tasks...Seriously how can a chip have better multi-threaded performance when they suffer at single-threaded performance. Forgive me but this sounds to be contradictory statements. Not to mention the fact that if true, AMD would be on top of the benchmark test.But I still am aware that Intel has better single threaded performance than AMD, but AMD has better multithreaded performance.
