on my pc that has an i3 intel cpu core, it says that it has 4 cores but my manufacturer told me that they are not acually separated threads but it is hyper threading but does that mean i can still use more than 1 thread cuz i can use MTUV speed hack and i still get a good speedup but when in software mode WITHOUT MTUV speed hack i tried increasing extra threads but did not even get 1 extra fps even with 1-3 extra threads.
Can someone explain ?

the I3 has 2 Cores, and 4 threads ( 2 threads for each core) , so hyperthreading is kinda troublesome with games since they are shared on the same core. (so when you are using mtvu ..etc its basically just adding more stress to a already fully loaded core).
MTVU speed hack is really only helpful on quad core (4 core) processors.
Intel Core I7 email@example.comGHz(TB, HT), 6GB DDR3@1600MHz, Geforce 970 G1
I think with laptops the only difference i can think with the i3 and i5 is the size of the cache and possibly clock speed
