From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hyperthreading is a technology that allows a single physical processor to behave like multiple processors. Essentially, it creates virtual cores that share the workload of a single physical core, allowing multiple tasks to be performed simultaneously. This can improve the performance of a computer by increasing its ability to handle multiple tasks at the same time. Think of it like a chef who has two virtual assistants to help prepare meals at the same time, even though there's only one physical chef.
