Any computer processor which assists the main processor (the "CPU") by
performing certain special functions, usually much faster than the main
processor could perform them in software. The coprocessor often decodes
instructions in parallel with the main processor and executes only those
instructions intended for it.
The most common example is a floating point coprocessor (or "FPU"), others are
graphics and networking.
