That's gotta be photoshopped. We have a PE6800 with two dual core Xeon's in it and I'm pretty sure that it doesn't support Hyperthreading.

Core 2 arch. does not support Hyperthreading....that's strictly a Netburst (Pentium 4) thing...
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

I don't think the Xeons use the Core 2 arch yet.. but that still doesn't mean that it supports Hyperthreading.

Ian, Woodcrest + Bensley is out. Based on the Core architecture. Is that the one you're referring to as in the PE6800?

Yeah, they support Core, but not Core 2.

Hmm.. looks like there is one version with Hyperthreading..
