Server Processors (CPU)
A processor, or "microprocessor," is a small chip that resides in computers and other electronic devices. Its basic job is to receive input and provide the appropriate output. ... The central processor of a computer is also known as the CPU, or "central processing unit".
A processor is an integrated electronic circuit that performs the calculations that run a computer. A processor performs arithmetical, logical, input/output (I/O) and other basic instructions that are passed from an operating system (OS). Most other processes are dependent on the operations of a processor.
The terms processor, CPU and microprocessor are commonly linked.
A processor includes an arithmetical logic and control unit (CU), which measures capability in terms of the following:
- Ability to process instructions at a given time
- Maximum number of bits/instructions
- Relative clock speed
Most people just say processor instead of "CPU" nowadays.
