HyperThreading Technology
Hyperthreading (HT) technology is Intel's term for simultaneous multithreading. It fundamentally signifies that one CPU core can work on two problems or processes at the same time. It doesn't indicate that the CPU can do twofold as much work. Just that it can guarantee that all its capability is utilized by dealing with several simpler problems or processes at once. Two logical cores can operate through tasks more effectively than a traditional single-threaded core. 

By considering the advantage of idle time when the core would previously be waiting for other jobs to finished, Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology enhances CPU output by up to 30% in several applications. Hyper-Threading is enabled by default, but it can be turned on and off from the BIOS interface by setting the Hyper-Threading Technology to “Enable” or “Disable.”

With CPU Hyper-Threading, a PC or laptop can handle more information in less time and run more background jobs without interruption. Under the correct conditions, the technology allows CPU cores to efficiently do two things at once. Multitaskers, streamers, and professionals throwing heavily threaded programs can increase their computing experience by advancing to a gaming laptop or gaming desktop CPU with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.

Turbo Boost

Intel Turbo Boost Technology
Intel Turbo Boost Technology, on the other hand, is a method to automatically handle the processor core quicker than the indicated frequency. The processor should be working in the power, temperature, and specification parameters of the thermal design power (TDP). This affects the improved operation of both single and multithreaded applications. There is no need to set up any software or application to reinforce Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. It is a feature supported by some Intel Processors.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology has two types. Intel Turbo Boost Technology was initially presented in late 2008 with the Intel® Core™ i7-9xx Processor Series. Intel Turbo Boost Technology v2.0 was announced in 2011 with the Intel® Core™ i5-2xxx and i7-2xxx Desktop Processors. Version 2.0 runs in the same manner as the first application and was enhanced for the new microarchitecture presented at the time.
