The processor (technically, central processing unit or CPU) is the brain of the computer, the part that does the mathematical calculations on which virtually all computing is based.

Adding a second CPU to the machine can improve performance by allowing two “brains” to share the work, by simultaneously working on filters and performing other calculation-intensive processes.
