Multi Thread (MT): A term used to describe applications that execute many tasks in parallel, and as a result benefit from offloading parts of their execution to other CPUs in the system. Multi-threaded applications tend to bottleneck on core allocation as well as package memory and I/O bandwidth, and as a result may benefit from running in an environment with more cores, somewhat lower core clock speeds, and very high distributed memory bandwidth (i.e. more sockets).

Contrast with ST.
