Intel develops reverse hyper threading!

6

This is completely off topic, but for any of you who are into computers (like me), this is HUGE news. To make it extremely simple (and fairly incorrect), essentially they developed a way to use two cores for one thread. What this means is this a big increase in single threaded performance, such that you no longer are wasting plenty of power in underutilized cores. This could likely mean the end of AMD, as this was supposed to be the biggest advantage to CMT. Intel becoming a monopoly would be the worst possible thing that could happen to the consumer (us).
