SubjectRE: MTRR & HT
Date
From
MTRRs must always be set properly, and they need to be consistent among the CPUs (and E820 info). For HT, they are shared between the two logical processors in a processor package. So you just set them once per processor package. Wrong MTTR setups (e.g. set UC for WB) can easily cause performance problems.
