I haven't seen a non-Xeon with HyperThreading enabled yet. In theory it
should work just fine as it's nearly identical to the P4 Xeon. Don't
expect a massive speed enhancement because of the HyperThreading though.
In fact, you may experience slowdowns. You will probably not notice it
though as the clock speed is insanely fast anyway.

I'm waiting to drop a "Hammer" in my next system.
