8 Core CPUs / Processors


Featured Products: 8 Core CPUs / Processors Deals
 

What is a core?

If you’re reading this then you don’t know too much about processors and want to learn. Or you’re reading this to find an excuse to say terrible things about us. Whichever the reason, NCIX welcomes you and hopes you can learn something today.

 

A sole core can (in the most basic sense) run a single program, maintain program integrity and task execution order, and many other complicated computer things. The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is made up of one or more of these cores and uses them to run tasks which the OS schedules. More than one core can be assigned on the same task, allowing them to share the processing power and ultimately shorten the time needed to complete the task. The more cores a CPU has, the more processes can be run in parallel and the less time a task will need to be worked on for.

 

That’s a very general run-down of what a core is. This has been brought to you by NCIX Canada.

How many cores do i need?

The more complex your task, the more cores you will need. For users mainly focusing on browsing the web and using basic application, two cores will be more than plenty — chances are, the processes you run won’t be able to reach the bottleneck that two cores provide anyways. But for more intensive tasks such as gaming or photo editing, and depending on the gravity of the tasks, you will need a quad core or greater processor to keep up and maintain smooth performance. As of mid 2017, the greatest number of cores on a consumer processor is 16, on AMD’s Threadripper. A processing unit with that many cores will only be fully utilized in extremely intensive tasks such as rending 3D, video, and audio. Even then it simply means less waiting time.

Introducing Intel's Hyper Threading TEchnology

All of Intel’s CPUs possessing 4 cores and up have the ability to utilize Intel’s innovative Hyper Threading technology. What Hyper Threading does is the CPU essentially tricks the OS into thinking it has double the number of cores than it actually has. So, a oct-core CPU would appear to have 16 logic processors in the OS’s eyes.


Hyper Threading works by taking advantage of the fact that for most workloads, modern CPUs have a surplus of resources. While many processes can be split up to the cores inside the CPU, usually these tasks aren’t very intensive and doesn’t take up all the resources that is available. Or certain task can only be assigned to specific modules inside the cores. As a result, some of the execution units (processing units) are sitting idle. With Hyper Threading, a core presents itself to the OS as two virtual cores and allows another set of data to be used by the same core. This enables more tasks to be run at the same time and effectively keeps most of the processing units busy, shortening the time needed to execute a program.


Of course, this doesn’t beat having the actual physical cores in your system.

 

 

Oct(opus) Core Processor

We’ve finally reached the enthusiast level hardware with the introduction of 8 physical cores. At this point, essentially all processor aspect of games will be running at maxed out and the rest will rely on the video card’s ability. Video transcoding and 3D rendering will take significantly reduced time than before and run without skips or lag. General computer processes will be ultra quick and seem to happen instantly. Among the masses are AMD’s RYZEN 7 processors and Intel’s high-end Xeon server processors.
