  Overview
Processor gathers information and interacts with the processes that are being run in the affected computer.
Processor does not pose a risk by itself, but it can be used with malicious intentions.
Processor is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.

 Word processor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A word processor (also more formally known as a document preparation system) is a computer application used for the production (including composition, editing, formatting, and possibly printing) of any sort of viewable or printed material.
The word processor has become a central component of the office suite and is increasingly only available in this form, rather than as a standalone program.
With the rise of personal computers, and in particular the IBM PC and PC compatibles, software-based word processors running on general-purpose commodity hardware gradually displaced dedicated word processors, and the term came to refer to software rather than hardware.

 Data Processor - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
In data processing, a Data Processor or Data Processing System is a system which processes information after it has been encoded into data.
A data processor is a specialized form of an information processing system.
Its chief difference is that the inputs to a data processing system are converted from information into data by a process called encoding prior to being processed and as a result, must run the processed data through a decoding process before the information can be output from the system.

An information processor or information processing system, as its name suggests, is a system (be it electrical, mechanical or biological) which takes information (a sequence of enumerated states) in one form and processes (transforms) it into another form, e.g.
An object may be considered an information processor if it receives information from another object and in some manner changes the information before transmitting it.
Any time the properties of an object change a process has occurred meaning that a processor of some kind is at work.

 [No title]
The Cell processor consists of a general-purpose POWERPC processor core connected to eight special-purpose DSP cores.
However, moving core processor functionality into software meant moving it into main memory, and this move put Transmeta's designs on the wrong side of the ever-widening latency gap between the execution units and RAM.
The end result is that there is this massive amount of control logic that now sits between the processor's cache and its execution core, just as therei s a massive amount of latency that sits between the cache and main memory.

The processor (really a short form for microprocessor and also often called the CPU or central processing unit) is the central component of the PC.
The processor is also a major determinant of overall system cost: the newer and more powerful the processor, the more expensive the machine will be.
CISC(complex instruction set computer) is the traditional architecture of a computer, in which the CPU uses microcode to execute very comprehensive instruction set.

 basics about computer hardware
Some processors separate integer data and address registers, while other processors have general purpose registers that can be used for both data and address purposes.
A processor will typically have one to 32 data or general purpose registers (processors with separate data and address registers typically split the register set in half).
Many processors have special floating point registers (and some processors have general purpose registers that can be used for either integer or floating point arithmetic).

Processor configured to generate lookahead results from operand collapse unit and for inhibiting receipt/execution of the first instruction based on the lookahead result
SMT gives chip-architects the ideal excuse to continue on the line of wider and wider super scalar processors and higher and higher super pipelined processors, beyond the level that would be economically feasible for single thread processors.
In some cases the result of the branch prediction is effectuated several cycles after the instructions are loaded from the level 0 cache: The "forward collapse unit" that is some 3 stages further down the line handles short forward branches where the branch and the destination address in the same "run" of code.

The latter processor therefore supports a 33% higher data rate to the Northbridge and is hence faster.
In recognition of the fact that Athlon processors are capable of out-performing the Pentium III and Pentium 4 processors, even when the latter are running at a higher clock speed, AMD have decided to badge their AthlonXP processors with an "equivalent" clock speed.
The new AMD Thoroughbred processor marks an evolutionary change for the AthlonXP, moving from the 0.18 micron Palomino core to the 0.13 micron Thoroughbred core.
