Computing started with single core processing. Multi-core processing started in the mid-1980s.

It is a processor that has only one core, so it can only start one operation at a time. It can however in some situations start a new operation before the previous one is complete. Originally all processors were single core. Multi core processors were introduced later, when increasing the clock speeds further was too hard. These new multi core processors are two processing units combined into one.

single core is a tradisional processor but multi core is a combined of two or more of independent processor

Quite simply, a Uni (Single) core processor has only a single primary calculations core. A Multi (Dual, quad, hexi, etc) core processor has more than one primary calculations core.

The individual executable unit of porcessor is called a core. There can be single/dual/quad cores in a single processor

No. Multiple cores does not mean performance is equal to [number of cores] times [performance of single core processor]. While a multi-core processor does have a performance advantage over a single-core processor, gains are usually in the ballpark of 15% per core. For example, comparing the Core Solo and Core Duo.

An example of a single core Processor is anything from Intel's first processor to the late Pentium 4 era. There are also some single core Pentium Core 2/duo line products but those were very cheap for consumers.

dual core processor means two processors which works together to do fast work as compared to single core processor.

Four independent cores into a single package composed of a single IC. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.

on a single core processor, if a program crashes, the system hangs while waiting for it. on a duel-core processor, the program has use of one core, leaving the other core free for other programs, such as Tssk Manager, so the dead program can be closed.

The advantage of dual core and quad core processors over single core processors is that a dual or quad core processor can perform more calculations per second than a single core processor.

Processor (CPU)The chip that is the 'brain' of the computer. The faster the processor, the better a computer will perform. The latest processors have multiple 'cores', meaning that in effect there are several processors on the same microchip, giving better performance. A core does all the calculations which run the programs. The more processors and faster the speed, the faster your computer will run.A core processor is one core that is in a single chipA dual core processor is two processors that are combined into a single chip.A quad core processor is four processors that are combined into a single chip.A hex-core processor is six processors that are combined into a single chip.A octa-core processor is eight processors that are combined into a single chip.The speed of a processor is measured in gigahertz (GHz).

AMD, Intel, ARM, VIA, Samsung, etc have all produced or manufactured a single core or variant of a single core processor at some point. I'm sure there's more, but I can't imagine you need to know all of them. If you meant FIRST single-core processor... The Intel 4004 was a 4-bit processor manufacturered in 1971-- This has the distinction of being the first fully complete processor contained on a single chip.

Dual core. Since it is dual core, it can do 2 processes at once, making it similar to a 4GHz single core

Hyper threading processors simulate a dual core processor with only a single core. Technically you are still running a single core processor, but multiple tasks can be run more efficiently..

Pentium 4 is a single core processor with a max CPU speed of 3.8Ghz Core2Duo is a dual core 64-Bit processor with a max CPU speed of 3.33Ghz. The Core2Duo would be much faster due to it being a dual core. A Dual core 1.5GHZ processor would be faster than a single core 1.5GHZ because a dual core process is a combination of two independent cores into a single processor. Its almost like having two processors.

Intel is currently preparing a six core processor for release.Four processor are the most you can get now.

Smart phones use single core and multi-core processors.

Multi-core processor systems are capable of reading and executing multiple instructions simultaneously. For example, if a single-core processor can computer 100 instructions per second, a quad-core processor can do the same number of tasks, but in 0.25 seconds.

Most likely, yes. Most games rely on the graphics card more than the processor, it is doubtful a 200MHz difference in processor speeds will be noticable in said game.

World of warcraft is software. It cannot choose whether or not to use a dual core processor. If the processor in a computer is a dual core model, it will be using both, if is a single core, it will use that, and if it is a quad core, it will use all 4.

The difference is that normal processor are single core. With dual core processor, you can get better performance as the programs are spread out into 2 processor rather than 1 processor. •Single core •start one operation a time •start a new operation before the first one has complete •slower and not stable, easy to hang •if a program crashes the system will hang and wait for it to responds •Dual core •start multiple of operation in a time •two single core processor combince into one •faster and stble •the program has use of one core, leaving the other core free for other program, such as Tssk Manager, so the dead program can be closed for more information, please find me on facebook, dylanwalagam@hotmail.com

A processing core is a complete, independent processor. Each core has its own ALUs, fetch-execute cycles, pipelines, and cache, but shares some support circuitry with the rest of the processor. A dual-core processor simply means that there are two independent processors in a single package.

A dual core processor, or core duo, is a single integrated circuit with two processors. Each processor performs independently, however, they are linked and thus processes can be performed up to twice as quickly as by one processor alone.

The link given below will be useful.

A dual core processor is a single processor that has two processing cores. A dual processor system is a system that had two individual processors. Their motherboards have two processor slots. Usually pretty pricey.
