hyper threading (HT)

Hyperthreading(HT) is used to accelerate computer processes. In this technology developed by Intel, a processor is divided into two virtual processors that can independently perform different computing operations simultaneously, like in multithreading.

The different threads of hyperthreading are different computing operations and work in parallel like a dual-core processor, but they have to share the input/output system.
