Pipeline

Definition - What does Pipeline mean?

In computing, pipeline refers to the logical queue that is filled with all the instructions for the computer processor to process in parallel. It is the process of storing and queuing tasks and instructions that are executed simultaneously by the processor in an organized way.

Techopedia explains Pipeline

A pipeline includes processor tasks and instructions in different stages. The computer processor works on each task in the pipeline. It works differently from the FIFO (first in-first out) and LIFO (last in-first out) computing architecture, but allocates some processing time to each task in the pipeline. The pipeline enables the processing of each task in parallel rather than waiting for a task to finish and then moving onto another.
