[Other] What Is Core And Threads In CPU ?

Hello Mi Fans
How's This Month Going On? When we talk about Processor then Core & Threads comes to our mind but do you know How both of these differ from each other ? Which one helps better multi-tasking or better gaming? No! Well lets discuss in todays article.
Core And Thread

A core is part of a CPU that receives instructions and performs calculations, or actions, based on those instructions. A set of instructions can allow a software program perform a specific function.

A thread is a unit of execution on concurrent programming. Multithreading is a technique which allows a CPU to execute many tasks of one process at the same time. These threads can execute individually while sharing their resources.

CPU cores mean the actual hardware component
Threads refer to the virtual component which manages the tasks
The CPU is fed tasks from a thread. Therefore, it only accesses the second thread when the information sent by the first thread is not reliable. There are many different variations of how CPU can interacts with multiple threads
Achieved through interleaving operation
Performed through suing multiple CPU'S
Increase the amount of work accomplished at a time.
Improve throughput, computational speed-up.
Make use of
Core uses content switching
Uses multiple CPUs for operating numerous processes.
Processing units required
Requires only signal process unit. Requires multiple processing units.

How Do CPU Cores And Threads Works
CPU cores are hardware. They do all the heavy lifting. Threads are used to help the CPU schedule their tasks more efficiently. If a CPU doesn’t have hyper-threading or multithreading, the tasks will be scheduled less efficiently, causing it to work overtime to access the information that’s relevant for running certain applications. One core can work on one task at a time. Multiple cores help you run different applications more smoothly. If you’re planning on running a video game, for example, it will take a number of cores to run the game, while the other cores can run background apps, like Skype, Spotify, Chrome, or whatever else you might be running.

Cores Vs Threads When Gaming
Cores will always be more important when gaming. Gaming itself isn’t too much of an intense task for a processor. Even modern games can run smoothly on a quad-core, 4-threaded CPU, depending on the processor’s cache and clock speed. Threads are actually useful when you’re running multiple tasks. s
ay you’re gaming and you plan on streaming. A multithreaded or hyper-threaded processor will help you run the games within playable frame rates while also handling all of the encoding tasks that are associated with recording/streaming.

Basically, more cores and more threads will always mean better performance. Some productivity-oriented software, like video editing, will benefit more from multiple threads, while only certain games will take advantage of these features. if your workload involves intensive tasks such as video editing, then multi-threaded processors are a must for you.
