Symmetric Multiprocessing, or SMP, is a multiprocessor computer architecture where two or more identical processors are connected to a single shared main memory. SMP systems allow any processor to work on any task no matter where the data for that task is located in memory; with proper operating system support. SMP systems can easily move tasks between processors to balance the workload efficiently. Hope ive helped.
