Im building a new box for my nephew and the MoBo supports hyperthreading. How do I know if the P4 chip has this technology when I buy it?

Does it say "Hyperthreading onboard" on the box?
Is there a code # I can check on the box?
Do some models (i.e. 533-FSB, 400-FSB) have it and some dont?
Or can I go by date maufactured in the Production code?

:)

Except the new P4P (P4 Portability) in 2.4, 2.6, 2.8 and 3.06 flavours, with 533FSB, HT support, 1.525vCore and a battery saving mode (1.4ghz I think) at 1.3vCore.....sampling currently for use in "transportables" (big laptops) - although I doubt you will come across one at PC World :D

Long answer short, look @ the CPU retail box, where INTEL logo is? .. you should see the H T as in this image (notice the HT on top right corner):

Boy, I'd sure like to get one of those new mobiles.

Considering I got the "old" 2002 week 32 to hit 220FSB, I wonder
what a 2003 with HT would do!?!?
