Multiprocessor

A computer’s capability to process more than one task simultaneously is called multiprocessing.

Multicomputer system

In a multiprocessor system, multiple processes all sharing resources operate inside one computer but in multicomputer systems, all processors have their dedicated resources and communicate by some external means.

A multiprocessor system is a single computer that operates with multiple CPUs, and a multicomputer system is a cluster of computers that operate as a singular computer. Multiprocessing environments can operate with CPUs sharing an operating system -- called symmetric multiprocessing -- or with each CPU running an individual instance of the operating system -- called Massively Parallel Processing.

Uses;

Multiprocessors:

- Used in embedded motherboard designs

- Used by Operating systems such as OS/2 for running complex computer programs from IBM.

- Multiple CPU systems can be used for all general computing tasks, but are usually reserved for the high-end market and intensive uses such as servers and professional video editing because of the high cost.

Multicomputers

- Multicore CPUs are used for any kind of computing and are found in smartphones, tablets, budget laptops and high-end desktops.

- Additionally, a multiprocessor system can use several multicore CPUs.
