    You haven't specified whether you are talking about mobile or desktop processors. Some of the mobile ones do but the desktop ones don't. This is easily researched on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors – James P Sep 1 '16 at 13:46

  • core i5 6600k. it seems that it doesn't – jellyfish man Sep 1 '16 at 13:55
  • technically, based on the architecture it does but it is disabled on the silicon level, because of binning and financial sense. – forums Sep 1 '16 at 15:29

The following information, with regard to Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, applies to all Skylake i5 processors.

  • @jellyfishman What's confusing? You say Wikipedia tells you they don't, as does this answer (which has a screenshot taken directly from Intel). – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 1 '16 at 14:25
