Introduction to CPUs

The CPU is the heart and soul of the personal computer, but how does it really work? In this module, we’ll outline the basic structure of the central processing unit, and you’ll learn how the front side bus and system clock work together to enable the raw processing power of the CPU.

Topics covered in this video:

  • Processor construction
  • Data bus
  • Address bus
  • Clock speed
  • Registers
  • Cache memory
  • Math co-processor
  • Real mode and Protected mode
