Would it be possible to make an array of Raspberry Pi 4 4GB Run together as a single desktop computer?

Would it be possible to make an array of Raspberry Pi 4 4GB Run together as a single desktop computer? Like if i needed more/faster possessing you'd could add on and code in another Pi4? My over all though was if i could get several of them to posses like a single CPU (Have each one be a different core and have the ability to add more)

yes and no.
Yes it can be done, but no it won't make a faster computer. At least not the kind you want.

I'm not the best at explaining things, so I'm sure somebody will be along to better explain.

No, not in the way you hope, a Raspberry Pi SBC is as much a computer as a PC or Laptop, you would not try joining them together ?


You can make a cluster for parallel / distributed computing, but you would need to be running software which is suitable for this scenario.....
