Conclusion On Quad Core Processor - Use of multicore processor creates a complexicity for the computer which requires the software to utilise all the cores conditionally.
I am using a quad-core processor in my computer but when I checked in task manager I found that I can just utilize 25% of processor’s memory.I tried to increase this limit for lengthy and high level tasks but the performance tab showed me that I have loaded the program on all the four windows of the processor.
A quad-core machine has four different processors within single chip, that’s why these processors can work independently from each other for separate tasks. This can be beneficial to you only in two conditions-
- If you are carrying out more than one processor intensive tasks simultaneously.
- If you are using any software which can spread a processor-intensive thing across the multiple processors.
Processor intensive task usually include any kind of calculation, compression or manipulation of audio-video files etc. Here it is a notable point that browsing on web, internet surfing and listening audio etc. are not processor intensive tasks that most of the time your processor just wait for the work of its compatibility. This way we can understand that in a multiple core machine it may be common that only one processor is busy in any processor intensive task and rest of the cores are not being involved at all.
This make you feel irritating and annoyed for the thinking that did you spent money in vain for dual core or quad core processor. The answer is probably not, if you use any software which know how to involve multiple cores in a processor based work at a time you can get advantage of a multicore processor. Still I would like to say its difficult for the computer to split the taskm in multiple divisions.
Frankly I say that if you dont need to give your computer additional tasks at a time you need not to waste your money on a quad core processor but if you want to do alot of things with your computer simultaneously and know how to apply the software to spli and divide the work over all the four processors you can boldly go for the multi-core processor,as I did.
I need to do many processor-intensive things at a time often so I preferred a quad-core processor, while I am using an specific software to include all the four processors in video files compression.
