SMT SUPPORT

Each AMD Ryzen 5000-series launched today incorporates native support for Simultaneous Multi-threading. Roughly analogous to Intel's Hyperthreading technology, SMT allows the processor to process two independent compute threads simultaneously on a single CPU core, sharing hardware resources where appropriate. Overall CPU performance therefore scales exceptionally with highly threaded tasks and operational scenarios.
