Central Processing Unit (or CPU)

By Sam SM


The CPU is a small metal square that serves as a sort of main brain for the computer. It manages your computers systems and what it is currently doing by accessing data in RAM memory store. It 'thinks' in binary which is a computers language using only two bases 1 and 0. It uses these in a complicated series that lets it send commands and receive them from your mouse, keyboard or other thing you may use to command your PC.

CPU Cores and Processing Speed differences

CPU's use cores to compute and some CPU's have more or better cores than others. The dual cores would have separate memory caches that it would use to split usage over two separate caches thus increasing performance.
