12th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors Datasheet, Volume 1 of 2
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
The processor supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) that allows an execution processor IA core to function as two logical processors. While some execution resources such as caches, execution units, and buses are shared, each logical processor has its own architectural state with its own set of general-purpose registers and control registers. This feature should be enabled using the BIOS and requires operating system support.
Intel recommends enabling Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology with Microsoft* Windows* 7 or newer and disabling Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology using the BIOS for all previous versions of Windows* operating systems.
