CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is that part of a home PC or a server which carries out all of the calculations. Each CPU functions at a specific speed and the larger it is, the sooner everything will be processed, so when you host resource-demanding web applications on a web server, for instance, a quick processor will enable them to be performed speedier, which will drastically contribute to the entire user experience. The newer generations of CPUs have 2 and more cores, each of them functioning at a particular speed to guarantee a superior and speedier performance. Such architecture allows the processor to control numerous processes all at once or a number of cores to manage a single process if it requires more computing power in order to be carried out. Needless to say, additional factors including the amount of RAM or the connection that a particular web server uses may also affect the overall performance of the web sites hosted on it.
