  • n. Plural form of coprocessor.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • These VCs and tech gurus expect the market to fragment into special purpose devices from low-end access products (Wintegra, Applied Micro/AMCC) to high-end coprocessors (Cavium, Raza Micro, NetLogic/NETL), and specialized hardwired Ethernet switches (Broadcom, Marvell).

  • To understand the flaw, you must understand how the 86 and 87 work as coprocessors.

  • Extra Coprocessor Support A86 now supports two additional coprocessors available for PC-compatibles: the 80387, available for 386-based machines, and the IIT-2C87, a 287-plug-compatible chip that adds a couple of unique instructions.

  • The numbers are encoded according to the IEEE standard, followed by the 8087 and 287 coprocessors.

  • According to Intel, Knights Corner is more readily compatible with software designed for supercomputers than GPU-based coprocessors. - Telegraph online, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph

  • GPU coprocessors intended for embedded applications where the GPUs do complex math that an x64 can't do without both taking its shoes off and pulling its pants down (if it is male) or lifting its shirt up (if it is female).

    The Register

  • This single-core architecture eliminates the need for heterogeneous designs with multiple coprocessors, accelerators, or SIMD engines? and thus reduces time-to-market and software design complexity.

    The Earth Times Online Newspaper

  • Available to a select group of first market movers, now engineers can test the visual clarity of Quad HD source devices on an actual 4K equipped TV using the world's first 4K video coprocessors from Marseille.

  • But in the long-term, we still can't help but wonder if the GPU won't get absorbed back onto the main processor die, just like all other math and image coprocessors have before it.
