A processor is integrated circuit which has the logic circuitthat responds to and processing the basic instructions that drive a computer. Thatcan be said as a performing actions as arithmetical, logical, input/output(I/O) and other basic instructions that are passed from an operating system(OS).The four primary functions of a processor are fetch, decode, execute andwrite-back.The processors most of them of today’s world’s gadgets aremulti-core which means that the integrated electronic circuit contains two ormore processors for enhanced performance, reduced power consumption and moreefficient simultaneous processing of multiple tasks which is usually called parallelprocessing.
It can be illustrated with the following example “Imagine a house is being built by a one person whichcan be said as single core “” The same house is being built by group of personwhich can be said as multi-core”Types of multi-core processors Dual Core ProcessorsDual-core Processor simply means Central Processing Unitswhich has two complete execution cores per physical processor. Dual coreprocessors has two processors combined together and their caches and cachecontrollers onto a single integrated circuit. Quad Core ProcessorsQuad-core processor is a chip with four independent unitscalled cores which read and execute tasks of central processing unit (CPU)instructions such as add, move data, and branch.Within the chip, each core operates in conjunction withother circuits such as cache, memory management, and input/output (I/O) ports.The individual cores in a quad-core processor will run multiple instructions atthe same time, increasing overall speed for programs compatible with parallelprocessing which can be double the speed of dual-core. Hexa Core ProcessorsHexa Core Processor is another multi-core processor that isbuilt with six cores.
It can handle tasks faster than the dual core and quadcore processors which three times faster than dual core and 1.5 times fasterthan quad-core.Octa Core ProcessorsThe octa core processors are made up of eight (8)independent cores to handle and perform task efficiently.
This implies thatOcta-core processors can performs double faster than the quad core processor.You might think that as a two sets of quad-core processorsare present in a gadget, but it is stillocta-core as you cannot call it double qual core processor. The cores willsplit various tasks between them according to their types which performssmoothly and efficiently.
Deca Core ProcessorsAs 2 cores are called a dual-core, 4 cores are called a quad core, 6 cores arecalled hexa-core and 8 cores are called octa-core. 10 cores are called Deca-corewhich is made up of 10 complete independent units to handle and perform taskvery efficiently than other processors. Having deca core processor along withan efficient processor type would really make Gadgets to perform efficientlyand super faster than others.
By this more cores means more processing speed This can be explained with small exampleIf we have 1200 chocolates and each chocolate for eachperson per day.2 persons complete it in 600 days.4 persons complete it in 300 days.6 persons complete it in 200 days.8 persons complete it in 150 days.
10 persons complete it in 100 days. Here is number ofpersons performance is like performanceof tasks by number of cores.
