Hyper-Threading and Dual Core Performance Comparison for Computational Intensive Applications – Update

In a post (Hyper-Threading and Dual Core Performance Comparison for Computational Intensive Applications) I wrote at the end of last year, I compared multi-threaded scientific application performance of a Pentium 4 processor with hyper-threading enabled and a Pentium D processor, and concluded that for multi-threaded scientific applications, hyper-threaded processor helped little in terms of application performance.
