Dual Core Processing: Over-simplified

Filed under: IT ISSUES — monbaesa @ 9:16 am

The limit on the optimum clock speed based on the present technology has been reached. To keep up with the performance race, chip manufacturers took advantage of the Moore’s Law: they packed two processors onto one chip, presumably, that these two processors would be twice as fast as its single-core counterparts. However, several technical issues, such as pipelining, caching and system bus data management are yet to be resolved. Dual Core Processor performance falls between Single Core Systems and Dual Processor Systems.
