I wouldn't doubt this could spice things up for upcoming releases of Pentium 4 processors with H-T technology enabled. Having a good number of mainstream titles supporting the feature could definitely boost P4 popularity even further.

According to Intel, version 7.0 of its C++ and Fortran compilers for both the Windows and Linux platform is now available for the Itanium 2 and for the 32-bit Xeon and Pentium 4 chips.

BTW, has anyone heard anything new about enabling H-T on older P4s?
