Multiple running of applications in your computer unit heightens the workload of the Central Processing Unit (CPU). This makes the data processing, control and logic components work double time; it slows down CPU run time, makes the microchip overheat that causes permanent damage to the motherboard.
By cutting down the load of the computer processor, gadgets such as a personal computer, laptop, mobile phone, and tablet will run faster and efficient.
In the development of latest gadgets being more portable and sophisticated in designs, internal processors are also updated to suit with these evolving change and sets more efficiency on the use of more applications.
Nvidia Tegra3 Quad-Core
From single-core, dual core was developed, then out of it, the quad-core. The next level core made versatility for smart phones and tablet PCs.
Nvidia introduces Tegra 3 quad-core processor - it puts quad-core processors into tablets and mobile phones where only desktop and laptops only benefited not very long time ago. This Transformer Prime has indeed made tablets run very fast and set more quad-core devices to be launched. Quad-core is the combination of two dual-core chips into a four core unit.
The use of a four-core processor needed lesser energy with its battery-saver CPU core and is cooler than the recent core chips. It makes processing faster and opens door to more advance applications. Its design improves touch responsiveness and reduced power consumption. Truly, we have evolved onto the next generation of computing.
