i9 9900ks HT off or on

Postby Vol141 » Wed Jun 24, 2020 6:33 am


Have a quick question:
What is better with i9 9900ks, Hyper Threading from @5.3GHz 8x, or HT on @5.1GHz 16x?

Prepar3D v5

Thanks for the answers.

There has been long discussions about whether HT on or HT off gave the best performance.

I believe the current consensus leans toward HT off.

I used to have it on with my i7-7700K, then after seeing the discussions turned it off. I could not notice any apparent difference on my system, so I just left it off.

Sorry I cannot be more precise -

System: i7-7700K @ 4.66 GHz, ASUS Z170-A motherboard, 16 GB 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM, nVidia GTX 960 w/ 4 GB DDR5 VRAM, Windows 10 Home.

All views and opinions expressed here are entirely my own. I am not a Lockheed-Martin employee.
