Hyper-threading technology

Anyone know why this footer on the intel site says this: "1Hyper-Threading Technology requires a computer system with an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor at 3.06 GHz or higher" click here

and then on another page it says this "Intel extends Hyper-Threading Technology† to a variety of desktop PCs, with the new Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, featuring an advanced 800 MHz system bus and speeds ranging from 2.40C to 3.20 GHz." click here&

All 800fsb CPUs are HT capable, even if it is P4 2.4. If I am not mistaken even some 533frsb are able to do this as well. Just upgraded from a 2.4(400) to a 2.8(800) with HT and it flies.

i thought that too - so I assume the footnote is a mistake.

BTW, Shop around for the CPU. I got my 2.8(800fsb)retail from a comp.fair for £140.

Hyperthreading is not actually a new technology, despite the hype...
