I would have expected that you would be asking the difference between
multithreading and parallel processing, which is simply a matter of using
sequential processor [multithreading] to simulate simultaneous data streams from multiple processors [parallel processing] while the terms you did inquire concerning are various terms of varying complexity which refer to the simultaneous accomplishment of various tasks.

A multithreading processor alternates the application of tasks to alternating clock cycles of the same processor.

A parallel processor has a matrix of multiple processors assigned to diverse tasks with streaming data from each clock cycle of the same processor for the same task.

multitasking simply means the simultaneous accomplishment of multiple tasks by any means including cyber or human.

Multiprogramming is the simultaneous operation of various alogorithms
where none are halted to allow the others to proceed, which process can be accomplished through with either parallel processors or a multithreaded processor.

Prior to the existence of multiple processors in a single CPU (ex. Core Duo) or even Multithreaded Processors [Pentium Four, PPC], certain types of looping algorithmic methods could be applied [and this programmer did apply such] to multiple tasks to create
the appearance that the tasks were accomplished simultaneously.
The latter was more of a Trompe l'Oeil

Dead or Dying cpu


Hi there.
There are no clear indications of this kind of thing, CPU's just don't start to die they just stop working, this is mainly due to overheating caused by dust or basically overworked by multitasking with not enough memory.
If you explain what is happening i can tell you how to rectify it.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Want to buy a new computer for personel use , which cpu is better dual core or core2duo girish email. girishpratap@yahoo.co.in


If you going to be using intensive programs like 3d editing, gaming, video editing, photoshop/image editing, or just multitasking and keeping alot of programs open you should get a faster cpu speed, and probably the core 2 duo. Core 2 duo (intel) is dual core and 64bit which gives more processing power, for some applications. Dual core is just normal processor (32bit) and just has 2 cores.

CPU is basically for the computers thinking/multitasking/processing info. If you want to multitask alot of programs your going to need processing power AND alot of RAM, the more the better/faster. If your going to be gaming or doing intesive stuff with graphics, you need a powerful video card. And hard disk is solely dependent on your storage needs too.

If your just going to be surfing the web, emailing, facebook, watching dvd's, and whatnot, any computer (new) should do you fine. But if you want HD video you need a powerful video card and processor.

Also When I mean powerful I dont mean the most powerful, just the mid-range of 'power'. So if you want to get anything more than basic, go for a mid-priced PC. Also this will let your computer last longer as updates and new software tend to slow down your computer, and you need more power to keep up with new stuff, but don't worry, it wont happen that fast!

I have never heard of multiprograming, time sharing is when you time share CPU time. (I.E. you have two programs and one program uses the CPU and when the first program isn't processing the second program is using the CPU to process its program). Multitasking is when two programs run at the same time on one CPU.

Hope that at least answered some of your question. Thank you for the request.

What is difference among multiprograming,timesharing,and multitasking?


Multiprogramming is a form of parallel processing on a single processor - or uniprocessor. Basically the operating system executes part of a one program, then part of another, and so on. It does it so quickly it seems to you and I that the programs are all being executed at once when in fact they are executed one at a time in parts to appear that way.

Timesharing is a very old system that basically used a special terminal that connected to a Central computer that offered a full operating system for the user to take advantage of. The users were charged for the time they were connected, the files stored and I believe a flat rate per month on top of that.

Multitasking is schedules what processes or tasks are to be running at any given time as well as when a waiting process will be scheduled to run. This allows the illusion of parrell processing, much like multiprogramming.
