Unlikely. Different threads on the same CPU core share their resources, so
they don't need an explicit communication channel at all (I'm simplifying
massively here). A real interconnect is only needed between CPUs and
between different cores on a CPU, and of course to the outside world.
Scott's explanation of why SMT works better now is much more likely to be
the real reason.
