  • As long as processor features remain the same, a cheap low-end dual-core processor can run every single program that an expensive high-end quad-core hyperthreaded processor can run; it just does so more slowly.

  • And since Intel's dual-core (but hyperthreaded) i5's and i3's tend to perform like AMD's quad cores, it's hard to recommend AMD here - there's more upgrade in the Intel solution, where you could drop in your original i5-750 or a high flying i7-860

  • This change resulted in a 40%+ improvement in performance exhibited by significantly less blocking during execution (see screenshot below showing that most of the time, many threads are executing on this quad core hyperthreaded system).

  • It can only scale up to 16 threads total, so the hyperthreaded version was noticeably slower at the default clock.
