You must be old. Hyperthreading is terrible compared to multicores. And even then, the Rafale computer would need a DPS cores or a overpowered processor to have the power to translate the data from various sensors in real time. Something Russia makes from at least two companies. Dunno if France does.
I am actually IT engineer
These computers use many cores but in this case each core has 1 thread. However why i said hyperthreading is because very often "main" computer has chip with multiple cores that have multiple threads, that is the one dealing with data projection to the pilot. While chips dealing with actual data processing are single thread multicore blocks, very often many, many blocks.
Russia is making something similar, but on on same level of integration and sophistication as Americans, French or Israelis, also from what i am aware Russian multicores are still produced abroad in Taiwan or where it was. STMicroelectronics i belive can deal with such production for French i had their PLC.
