OSNews posted a new article entitled "Exploring the Use of HyperThreading Technology for Multimedia Apps", contributed by Intel researchers. Here's a snippet from the introduction:

"Processors with Hyper-Threading technology can improve the performance of applications by permitting a single processor to process data as if it were two processors by executing instructions from different threads in parallel rather than serially. However, the potential performance improvement can be only obtained if an application is multithreaded by parallelization techniques."

The article presents "code generation and optimization techniques developed for the Intel C++/Fortran compiler." Thanks go out to Eugenia for the link.
