I also want to upgrade my computer and wondered if Hyperthreading improves merely the use of Reason.

Since the k models are more expensive I decided against it but I want a very fast computer for audio-related tasks.

I read that sometimes Hyperthreading slows down certain processes like games, because one real core also has to compute a virtual one and not every program uses the virtual one efficiently...

If you ensure that Reason will profit from getting the 3770k with activated HT I will probably go for it.
