No, dual processors >>> hyperthreading > normal.

Like hyperthreading though, dual processors doesn't do that much for Vegas.

Dual processors will be very disappointing when you are stacking filters since the second processor will be waiting around for footage to encode in DV.

Hyperthreading is getting one processor to pretend to be dual processors and to try to get it to do the work of 2 processors. Normal applications do not push the processor to its full capacity so there are times when the processor can actually do the work of 2 processors. When it can't, it slows down. Real world performance increases range from -5% to 40% for multi-threaded applications, and average something like 15% (depends heavily on the program).

For the theory behind hyperthreading and dual processors, you can go over to Ars Technica and read about it. It doesn't really help you to do video work though.
