Hi, as the thread title suggest i got a couple of doubts with my processor.

1. i have read that it's possible to increase the TPU frecuency of the processor, https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/93432/intel-core-i5-6198du-processor-3m-cache-up-to-2-80-ghz.html there it says up to 2.4 GHz, also, https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core-i5-6198DU-CPU-Benchmarks-and-Specs.196704.0.html in there it says that i can increase that up to 2.7 GHz with 2 cores, the question is:
- is that dangerous for my laptop in term of inestabilities, i know the useful life would be affected, which i don't care if it stays as stable as it's right now.
- If that's not dangerous, how can i do it ?

2. I'm a Mechanical Engineer, and I do lot's of simulations, the program suggest that i deactivate the hyperthreading https://www.sharcnet.ca/Software/Ansys/17.0/en-us/help/ai_instl/win_hyperthreading.html. As far as i know Core I5 doesn't have it, but in the specs of the processor, you can see 2 cores, 4 threats, which means it have some kind of hyperthreading. Questions:
- Is it hyperthreading?
- How can i deactivate the hyperthreading?
-Which are the repercutions of deactivate the hyperthreading in the whole system, windows, internet navigation, etc?
-Is it possible to increase the velocity of my processor up to 2.7 GHZ if i don't have the "hyperthreading" on, as notebookcheck.net suggest ?

Thank you very much for your time, and help.

The I5 6198DU does have have HT, it is not appropriate for OCing nor would it be beneficial to start tinkering with disabling the HT.

Two core/four thread CPUs are ok for school or basic office type work but for anything more demanding a quad core or above CPU will be required, any dedicated program will have "minimum and "recommended" specification info available.
