I am using numpy-Python scripts that take a lot of computing power to execute. The scripts themselves are already quite well written an I can say that I cannot really improve their speed by writing them better.
I have an intel i7 m620 (old guy...) on my machine, with Hyperthreading enabled. That means I have 4 threads on a dual-core CPU. Python only runs one one thread at a time, would disabling Hyperthreading in the BIOS make my program run nearly 2x faster? (only two threads would be available, one per CPU)
