I was wondering, if I had a dual-processor system, or perhaps even an n-processor system (where n => 2), wouldn't a process be completed faster (i.e. response time decreased) on that n-processor system when compared to the same process on a single-processor system? I mean, is it possible for the process to be split up and worked on by the n-processors?
I am writing this because I had an argument with a proff. about this last week, thanks!
