A quad-core processor is a chip with four independent
units called cores that read and execute central processing unit (CPU) instructions such as add,
move data, and branch. The advantage is that the individual cores in a quad-core processor can run multiple instructions at the same
time, increasing the overall speed for programs compatible with parallel processing.
