Definition

computer-intensive

Computer-intensive is a term that applies to any computing application that requires the resources of a lot of computers, such as grid computing. A similar but distinct term, compute-intensive, refers to any computer application that requires a lot of computation, such as meteorology programs and other scientific applications. The two types of applications are not necessarily mutually exclusive: some applications are both compute- and computer-intensive.
