When you use hyperthreading, each virtual cpu runs at 70% of a full CPU,
so hyperthreading could be slower than non-hyperthreading.  On a fully
loaded dual cpu system, you are looking at 2.8 cpu's (0.70 * 4), while
if it isn't loaded, you are looking at slowing down if you are only
using 1 or 2 cpu's.
