    1. What is the impact of Enabling Hyperthreading in Memtest ?

    2. Is it advised to enable hyperthreading to test the Memory ?

    Thanks..

    For a long while we were using multithreading and hyperthreading. Just based on the assumption that more threads means faster testing.
    Turns out it isn't true. Hyperthreading actually slows down testing slightly and having it on didn't seem to find any additional memory errors. So it is now off by default.

    But there is an option to turn it off and on. Try it both ways and compare the difference.
