But if you do the same on a single-core (HT or not HT doesn't matter really much), each instance would run only at half the speed...
I lost my mind somewhere else, sorry...

Hyperthreaded CPUs and dual core ones show equal notation on task manager, and I had switched off my brain before writing.

Oh, well shat hippens...
