AMD and Sun also teamed up last week as part of an effort with other industry players including Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel and Nvidia on a new pervasive parallelism lab at Stanford University, which aims to develop new techniques, tools, and training materials to allow software engineers to harness the parallelism of multiple processors. The center, with a budget of $6 million over three years, will research and develop a top-to-bottom parallel computing system, from fundamental hardware to user-friendly programming languages that will allow developers to exploit parallelism automatically, Stanford said.

interesting read.
