I just bought a new motherboard what does it mean: "Supports Hyper Threading Technology"?

Hyper-Threading is an Intel processor technology. It means the motherboard supports Intel processors using Hyper-Threading. As for what it is, you can look at this Intel flash, if you can stomach all the marketing. It has a nice way of showing the differences between single-core/hyper-threading/dual-core.

So hyper threading isn't another word for dual-core? Darn. Thanks!
