What are the differences between threads and cores in processors?

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Many new processor are being developed these days and they have new features added each generation. But the two terms related to processors have occupied my mind. What are the major differences between threads and processors? For example, a Core 2 Duo E4600 Processor clocked at 2.4 GHz has 2 cores and 2 threads. What does it mean?

What are the differences between threads and cores in processors?

The difference between thread and core in Processor is that Processor is shows the speed of the computer to defined by the clocking frequency. Where threads is the part of the process or it can be set of instruction 
that can be use or executed by the core of the  Processor .
The core Processor is archive the higher frequencies and also improve  the fabrication technology to add more chips. Clocking frequencies is increase until the thermal will be hit. It can be prompted more then  one chip together to the same circuit. Using that the core processors archive the larger performance. Which can leading to the multi core processor. A single processor can break into deffrent deffrent threads that can be executed by the multiple cores. Where multi threading is to handle the CPU multiple processing threads. The core is generally called as physical distinct CPU or it is completely intendant processor. EOCH core can have its own function indecently and can share  their resource with the other cores. Every core processor have their cache processor. Which can L1, L2 and L3 caches shared. This is the main deference  between threads and core processor.
