Parallel Computing on Symmetric Multiple Processors (SMP)

Symmetric multiple processor PC is that multiple CPUs or multiple cores in a CPU share the same board, memory, resources and operating system (OS). Symmetric multi-processing is the processing of programs by multiple cores that share a common operating system and memory.

Furthermore, the CPU cores share memory and the I/O bus. A single copy of the operating system is in charge of all the CPU cores.
