Hyperthreading is the art of effectively giving the impression there are two processors in the system when in actual fact there is only one.

As to whether a 3Ghz is better than a 1.5Ghz, without knowing more details about the processors in question, it's akin to saying is my car engine better than your car engine? At the end of the day the cars drive in the same way, get cut up in the same way and get flashed by speed cameras in the same way but you can only legally do 70mph on the motorway whether you drive a Ford KA or a Ferrari.
