c++ - OpenMP support?

It appears that on recent Pentium 4, hyper-threading support can be 
enabled. I believe the software can use it through OpenMP compiler 
extensions. Are these planned for DMC?

I don't know anything about them.

Oh, i'm sorry, i believe this link is somewhat misleading - it's only 
the OpenMP which is a programming interface. You also need to find out 
about its hardware counterpart - supported in latest Pentium 4 CPUs, 
requiering mainboard and OS support as well - HyperThreading. Rumors say 
that it's a Good Thing for multithreaded applications, but i really know 
nothing beyond, nor whether it makes much sense for your compiler. Intel 
has it, but so far none else. It's hard to compete against intel 
compiler on speed anyway.
