ive had my asus p4pe motherboard for about 6 months and only now started looking at its features. ive got pentium 4 2.4ghz cpu and am wondering what this hyper-threading is and does. how do i know what cpu's support it, cos according to my bios, mine doesnt. is it worth buying a new cpu to use this fearture or should i just leave it as it is?
