Hexa-core - definition
Hexa-core is a type of processor in which six (6) independent CPU cores take place. These six (6) cores can be utilized based on the need and co-operate in all sorts of instructions set. If all the cores don’t need to be activated at the same time then unused cores stays inactive automatically to save power consumption. For example, the AMD Phenom II X6 processor is a Hexa-core processor. The thread number and clock speed (of each core) also may vary depending on the number of cores. Different cores may have different execution capabilities.
