Parallel processing

Parallel processing is the method of evenly distributing computer processes between two or more computer processors. This requires a computer with multiple CPUs, or a CPU (or GPU) equipped with multiple cores. It also requires an operating system capable of supporting parallel processing, or software written specifically to process tasks in parallel.
