Humans certainly have a brain, the function of the human brain itself is of course used to think and coordinate all movements in human activities.

Similar to a computer, this device also has a brain that functions to coordinate all functions on a computer.

The brain of the computer itself is a processor or commonly called the Central Processing Unit. Without the brain, humans die. Similarly, without a processor, the computer will not be able to live.

When using a computer, the processor always starts from beginning to end in the use of the computer itself.

Regardless of the type of computer being used, whether it is a desktop computer, a server, or a laptop, a processor is still needed in each of the games.

In the world of computing, there are so many different brands of processors that are now always up-to-date on the market.

But of the many brands, there are some of the best-selling processor brands in the market namely AMD and Intel.

So, a processor better known as a CPU is arguably a machine whose function is to compute.

Actually, the processor itself is the most sophisticated machine even though it is packaged in the form of a separate chip.

History of Processor / CPU

The processor itself has been fairly long development. Including Intel itself which is considered as the world’s first processor manufacturer. Intel was recorded to have released the Intel 4004 version in 1971.

The first processor is actually only able to perform simple functions, such as addition and subtraction.

Intel 4004 also can only do it with a capacity of 4 bits. At that time, maybe it had become an extraordinary thing. Because the processor has been packaged in a small chip that is light to carry.

Because before to do the same thing, the developers have not been able to back up on 1 chip.

They must configure many chips at once or make large circuits of various components such as transistors connected to each other. Intel 4004 is one of the first processors that can be packaged in 1 small chip.

Understanding Processor / CPU

Understanding CPU or Central Processing Unit is computer hardware that has the task of receiving and executing commands and data from the software. Because it is a data processing center in a computer, the CPU is often referred to as a processor.

Technically, the processor content is a series of integrated circuits and has been packaged into compact and very small. This chip is very small and thin.

Inside is silicon implanted with a transistor into the CPU. These transistors will form a series of microprocessors.

It turns out, in a mini processor chip size can contain tens of millions of transistors!

Though the CPU is only one square inch wide. A simple processor (like a cellphone) might only contain thousands of transistors with a size of only a few square millimeters.

CPU function

The main function of the CPU is to perform arithmetic and logical operations on data taken from memory or from information provided through some hardware.

The CPU is almost the same as a calculator, it’s just that CPU is far more complex in processing than given instructions.
