Should an AMD PHenom II X4 955 be able to hyper thread in Carrara 8Pro?
Am only getting 4 tiles. =(
When selecting a CPU, how can you know ahead if it is capable of hyper-threading?
AMDs don't do / require hyperthreading, you get four real cores in a X4.
Hyperthreading is an intel feature.
If you have good motherboard you should be able to overclock your chip though.
I'm running a FX 8 core and have it comfortably clocked from 3.6 to 4.2ghz.
I used to run my Phenom X4 3.2 at around 3.8ghz.

Ok, well that 'splains it! I built the computer last year
as an Octane Render box to use CUDA cards.
Just put Carrara on it yesterday, and realized it wasn't hyperthreading.
Thanks for the info. ;)
The main board is an ASUS M4A89GTD Pro ( =O ) and says I can over-clock it, boost it, and hit
the Turbo key, so will see how fast I can get it to go, though I doubt it would come close to
Garstor's new smokin' screamer. :cheese:
