Available with the Inspiron 5150 in the United States, the new Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor at 3.06GHz with HT can enable customers to do more tasks in less time. The technology makes efficient use of processing power by utilizing moments of idle cycles that allow for the processor to work on more than one processor request simultaneously.
“The addition of Hyper-Threading Technology to the Inspiron 5150 is another example of the closing performance and functionality gap between notebook and desktop computers,” said Jay Parker, director of notebook marketing at Dell. “It provides the capability for an additional level of productivity while maintaining portability.”
Consumers can expect better overall performance while running multiple computing tasks when using the HT-enabled Inspiron notebook. For example, a customer can now convert a video clip from one format to another while watching a DVD without interruption. Or, users can convert their CD collection to a digital format while enjoying a CPU-intensive game without sacrificing frame rate.
