My site is a Microsoft niche blog.

My top performing article is related to HDMI.
I have several other articles on the same topic. 

Is it necessary that I put rel=canonical tag to all the other HDMI articles pointing to the most traffic generation HDMI article.

1. What are the pros and cons of this implementation
2. If it is a yes, how should I implement the rel=canonical tag for all the other articles.
3. I am using Wordpress, so it is very simple to use that. Can i do that by just pointing to the main article.

Please provide suggestions.

are all your HDMI articles have the same text? if yes then you should add a canonical tag but if all articles are different then you don't need to add a canonical tag in them.

I don't think you understand what exactly the purpose of canonical tags are.  The use of Canonical tag is because....

All 4 different urls with the same exact content.

Just because one article out performs another does mean you redirect it to the better performing article, unless, it's the exact same content and in that case I would just do a 301redirect.
