Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Move over dual-core, quad-core and even six-core; researchers have developed a new computer chip that offers a whopping 36 cores! More cores can mean greater system power. So why wouldn't every system simply up the core count? One reason is due to the amount of required communication between the cores, which are a computer chip's processing units. The more cores the bigger the issue of communication between the cores become. This...

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the processor component of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a program. It is the primary element carrying out the computer's functions and the unit that reads and executes basic program instructions. The form, design, and execution of CPUs have radically changed since the earliest examples, but their elementary operation remains very similar. Some of the first CPUs were custom-designed as a part of a larger computer. However, this...
