The Processor Today

    The processor in this day and age is simple amazing. 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 cores for consumer use.
Each tier of CPU has a use for the average consumer. Simple File Servers can suffice on a single core, but a much more power gaming computer prefers 4, while a video or graphic editing machine requires the power of a hexa core CPU.
   On the Commercial or Professional side the possibilities seem endless. Some Super-Computers use up to 200 Cores. While That number steadily increases, competitors are arising.

The competition known as ARM will be discussed at another time.
