Some of the main differences between Multicomputer and Multiprocessor are:

  1. Multicomputer system is made up of many computers,each of which having its own memory, while Multiprocessor is a system having more than one CPU on its motheboard.
  2. Because multicomputer systems are made up of more than one computer, they take up more space than the average desktop computer. Multiprocessor computers are more space-effective because the processors need a single motherboard, placed in a single case.
  3. Multicomputer systems are used when strong computer power is required, because each processor uses its own dedicated memory. Multiprocessor computers are less powerful than multicomputer systems because their processors share the same memory.
