Killer micro

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Killer micro may refer to any of the following:

1. The killer micro, a type of microprocessor-based computer that competes with mainframes and supercomputers, at a fraction of the cost. A killer micro uses MPP technology, assembling and networking a large number of lower-powered CPUs to achieve massive processing power.

2. An e-sports player who has a high level of accuracy and fine-tuned control in a competitive video game could be said to have "killer micro," meaning extraordinary micro-management ability. For instance, after watching Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok achieve a pentakill in League of Legends with the character LeBlanc, it would be reasonable to state, "Faker's got killer micro."
