I've got a Northwood Pentium 4 2.4ghz 533FSB. In AIDA32/Everest it shows I have two CPUs, and the second one is disabled. In Pcmark04 it shows that HyperThreading is available but disabled. Is there any way to soft-mod the CPU to enable HT?
my bios has Hyper-Threading Enabled (as an option). I think that Intel put HT on all Northwood B core cpus, but only enabled it on the 3.06ghz model, but im trying to find a way to make it work on my one.
I'm pretty sure I loaded *nix on a Compaq/HP server for a customer that was a 2.8 P4 HT back in January. I don't recall seeing HT on any 2.4's I've worked with, but I thought I saw a thread somewhere that was about 2.4 HT's though.
ya. it's the P4 2.4C 800mhz bus w/ HT. it's what i'm using. but i don't think the 533 bus has HT.
edit: yep, confirmed it. go HERE. Intel P4 1.3-2.8Ghz, 400mhz and 533mhz FSB = no HT. sorry dude. ya want HT, gotta get a new processor. though the 2.4C isn't that expensive anymore, and it's great for OC'ing. mine's running at 3Ghz very stable.
i know that it doesnt officially have HT. Why im asking is because it seems to have the foundations laid for it (that why it comes up as 2 cpus in PCmark04 or Everest), even though it is not workable. Sort of like softmodding a x800 pro > x800 xt to get 4 more pipes, because they are there, just not working or enabled.
