I know that Steinberg recommends to turn OFF in the BIOS the Intel Hyperthreading option for those who have the capable processors, but was wondering if there are some of you that don´t turn it off this feature and still get good results?
There’s a ton of info about this on the net. I have an Intel Core i7 920 and I leave it On and get amazing results! Been using this processor for two years now. I can’t speak for the old original hyperthreaded Intel processors, but the newer modern one’s work excellently with it on. People have also done benchmarks that show a marked improvement leaving it on versus turning it off.
Since I am new to the platform and mainly to Cubase, I disabled the HT feature, but noticed a PC slowdown in general and there was not any problem whatsoever with HT enabled, so I´ll turn it on again.
Anyway, I´ll look for more info about HT and Audio on the web
You can look for more information on the web, but if your computer works with HT on, don’t care much about what you read, you might find conflicting information. I have conducted, as soon as I got the i7, many tests to be sure that HT would do no harm. and not only it doesn’t, but it really increases performance a lot, so trust your own machine behavior, is my suggestion.
