Best to try it on and off with a big session and see. In the past, there have been different results on very similar systems, so testing is still the best way

Agreed. Works well for me; I've tried both ways.

For me lately, it's very similar both ways.

Did a bunch of tests earlier year. For me, 8700K : Win 10 : PT 2020.5 : MOTU 1248, hyperthreading always on is better. EXCEPT, when I need low buffer sizes (24/96 with 64 sample buffer) then I need to use the Affinity Switch to release one half of one of the cores for the OS - this is essentially HT off for one core.

YMMV

On my AMD Ryzen 2700X Win 10 system I get better performance with hyperthreading turned off, less CPU spikes etc. this only counts for pro tools though, other programs might benefit from hyperthreading.
