If you're right then I suppose Intel wouldn't even think about it, but they do. Maybe they know something we don't?The thing is, the 8 core processor with SMT will be less expensive to manufacturer and actually use less power than an 8+8 processor. Big.Little makes no sense whatsoever on a desktop.
Using only HT will obviously cost less, but that doesn't mean anything if we don't know the pro's of going with this solution.
