[PCW] Multicore Myths Revealed - Page 5

post #41 of 47
man great reading.
I'm an software engineering student.

This reality makes my skin crawls tho.
What will happen when we hit the bottom ?
no more speed for you.

Programmers are willing to use newer technologies..
Designers and analyst are dinosaurs and will be the doom of us all
Seriously, only new enterprises with young developers may hope to achieve great things. Older bizz tend to re-use bad/old code for $$$ reasons

One year and two months later, things are about the same. Should we check same time next year?

It's going to be a slow process. Monolithic OS's are much easier to do running on monolithic processors.

GPU's have so much more compute power but harnessing it is a pain. Multicore processors benefit from parallelism but they do not FORCE you to use them that way.
GPU's force you to use parallelism from the get go which is why we have TONS of software for CPU's and only a few very cool very complicated graphics engines for GPU's.

Gallium for linux will probably be the first to do it but just judging from what the head guy says about it, the way it works is "surprising" and even somewhat unpredictable as to what exactly it does to the final code.

But at least Intel and Microsoft are getting their "alibi's" of where it comes from ready even if they are a bit late to the game.

great read, extremely interesting finding out more about how the multicore issues work and common myths about it
post #47 of 47
there should be some kind of autolock feature for threads that have been dead for so long.
