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