[RC5] Does Intel hyperthreading help?

Do either the OGR or RC5 clients gain any benefit from the hyperthreading
architecture of the newer P4s? I'm about to upgrade from a 1.67 GHz P4 to a 3.0
GHz P4 with HT.  Was wondering if I'll see much less than than 2x, close to 2x
or more than 2x performance improvement on RC5/OGR tasks.
