Over the years, the computer architects were continuously devising new hardware technologies to improve the system performance and to compete with the advancements in software. Simultaneous Multithreading Technology (SMT) was one of the techniques where multiple threads can be simultaneously executed by a single processor without doing a context switch. Hyper-threading, the Intel's way of providing simultaneous multithreading technology, adds a virtual thread along the side of a physical thread to increase the processing power of a processor.
