Intel -

Pentium 4: Intel Performance Acceleration Technology helps to improve performance by reducing memory latencies. Increases memory and system-level performance by optimizing internal data paths.

Due to Chipset (Intel 875P) architecture limitation, DDR400 Memory Module is only supported when using Pentium 4 processor with 800MHz FSB. A Pentium 4 processor with 533MHz FSB will support DDR333 and DDR266 Memory Module. A Pentium 4 processor with 400MHz FSB will only support DDR266 Memory Module. See: Memory for further Info.

Hyper Threading (HT) Functionality Requirement:
Hyper-Threading Technology enables multi-threaded software applications to execute threads in parallel. Hyper-Threading allows the O/S to see two Processors. Enabling the functionality of Hyper-Threading Technology for your Computer System requires all of the following platform Components:

  1. CPU: An Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology.
  2. Chipset: An Intel Chipset that supports HT Technology.
  3. Bios: A BIOS that supports HT Technology and has it enabled.
  4. OS: An Operating System that has optimizations for HT Technology (WinXP - Pro & HE).
