Difference Between CPU and GPU

CPU vs GPU   CPU, the acronym for Central Processing Unit, is the brain of a computing system that performs the “computations” given as instructions through a computer program. Therefore, having a CPU is meaningful only when you have a computing system that is “programmable” (so that it can execute instructions) and we should note […]

Difference Between CPU and RAM

CPU vs RAM CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the part of the computer that executes instructions. Instructions executed in the CPU could carry out various operations such as arithmetic operations, input/ output operations, etc. over the years, technology used in CPUs has changed tremendously but still the basic operations performed by a CPU have not […]

Difference Between 2.2 and 2.3 and 2.7 MacBook Pro

2.2 vs 2.3 vs 2.7 MacBook Pro What is Processor speed? Processor speed is the speed at which the processor is able to complete a certain amount of cycles per second. Processor speed is measured in Hertz. In simple terms, if the processor speed is 1 hertz that means the processor is able to complete […]
