In this post, we will understand the difference between multiprocessor and multicomputer −
It consists of multiple processors within a single computer.
It is a singly shared memory that is attached to the elements being processed.
It is necessary for the processing elements to communicate with each other.
It is a dynamic network.
Example of multiprocessor is a sequent symmetry S-81.
It is an interlinked multiple autonomous computer.
The memory attached to the processing elements are distributed in multiples.
It is not required for elements being processed to communicate.
It is a type of static network.
Example of a multicomputer is a message passing multicomputer.
