Topics similar to or like Multiprocessing

Use of two or more central processing units within a single computer system. Wikipedia

  • Multi-core processor

    Computer processor on a single integrated circuit with two or more separate processing units, called cores, each of which reads and executes program instructions. The instructions are ordinary CPU instructions (such as add, move data, and branch) but the single processor can run instructions on separate cores at the same time, increasing overall speed for programs that support multithreading or other parallel computing techniques. Wikipedia

  • Parallel computing

    Type of computation where many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously. Large problems can often be divided into smaller ones, which can then be solved at the same time. Wikipedia

  • Process (computing)

    Instance of a computer program that is being executed by one or many threads. It contains the program code and its activity. Wikipedia

  • Computer multitasking

    Concurrent execution of multiple tasks over a certain period of time. New tasks can interrupt already started ones before they finish, instead of waiting for them to end. Wikipedia

  • Multiprocessor system architecture

    Defined as "a system with more than one processor", and, more precisely, "a number of central processing units linked together to enable parallel processing to take place". To boost a system's execution speed. Wikipedia

  • Superscalar processor

    CPU that implements a form of parallelism called instruction-level parallelism within a single processor. In contrast to a scalar processor that can execute at most one single instruction per clock cycle, a superscalar processor can execute more than one instruction during a clock cycle by simultaneously dispatching multiple instructions to different execution units on the processor. Wikipedia


    Sentences forMultiprocessing

    • Some implementations base their user threads on top of several kernel threads, to benefit from multi-processor machines (M:N model).Thread (computing)-Wikipedia
    • The most powerful use model of big.LITTLE architecture is Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP), which enables the use of all physical cores at the same time.ARM big.LITTLE-Wikipedia
    • This allows for parallel execution of the concurrent units, which can significantly improve overall speed of the execution in multi-processor and multi-core systems.Concurrency (computer science)-Wikipedia
    • Also in 1978, L. J. Sevins and Steve Goings from Mostek visited Brinch Hansen at USC, where he outlined a low-cost multiprocessor architecture.Per Brinch Hansen-Wikipedia
    • One of the major drawbacks, however, is that it cannot benefit from the hardware acceleration on multithreaded processors or multi-processor computers: there is never more than one thread being scheduled at the same time.Thread (computing)-Wikipedia
    • TPF is capable of running on a multiprocessor, that is, on systems in which there is more than one CPU.Transaction Processing Facility-Wikipedia
