MULTITASKING

:
Multitasking is when multiple jobs are executed by the CPU simultaneously by switching
between them. Switches occur so frequently that the users may interact with each program while
it is running.

MULTIPROCESSING:
Multiprocessing is the running of two or more programs or sequences of instructions
simultaneously by a computer with more than one central processor.

THROTTLING:
Throttling is Adjustment of the speed of the CPU. Throttling Is also referred to as “ dynamic
frequency scaling," CPU throttling is commonly used to slow down the computer whenever
possible to use less energy and conserve battery. It is also used to make the system quieter.

PROCESSOR CACH:
A processor cache is a hardware cache used by the central processing unit (CPU) of a computer
to reduce the average cost (time or energy) to access data from the main memory.

SUPER SCALAR PROCESSOR:
Refers to microprocessor architectures that enable more than one instruction to be executed per
clock cycle. A superscalar processors implement a form of parallelism called instruction-level
parallelism within a single processor.

HYPER THREADING:
Is a technology of some intel microprocessors that allow a single microprocessor to act like two
separate processors to the operating system and the application programs that use it.

SOCKET FORM FOCTORS:
They are chips used in microprocessors to connect so that the operating system can run the
computer system in order to execute programs.

CPU COOLING

Fans are widely used along with heat sinks to reduce temperature by actively exhausting hot air.Cooling is required to remove the waste heat produced by computer components within permissible operating temperature limits. Components that is susceptible to temporary malfunction if overheated therefore computer fans. .
