Hello everyone,

I have a question about the Hyper-Threading .
When i enable the Hyper-Threading of the workstation with 12 cores and 24 threads, the calculate speed of Converge case slow down compare to disable the Hyper-Threading. So i am confused that why it slow down when the Hyper-Threading is used? Did you met this situation? Is there any solutions? Maybe it is recommended disabled the Hyper-Threading when use Converge?
Thanks for your help!

Sincerely!
hyhui

Hi,

yes, it is recommended to disable HT. With HT, one physical core appears as two processors to the operating system, allowing concurrent scheduling of two processes per core. However, this slows down the processes.

Easy way to say it, virtual cores are not as fast as physical ones, therefore the physical ones have to wait for the results calculated by the virtual ones, because load ballancing assumes equal perfomances.
