Parallel Processing - Introduction • We already looked at parallel processing when we studied pipelining. • Uniprocessors are running out of gas – Even with pipelining (“fine granularity parallelism”) and cache. – Technology, speed of light, and quantum mechanics are now the limit. –....
Introduction In the 1980s it was believed computer performance was best improved by creating faster and more ecient processors. This idea was challenged by parallel processing, which in essence means linking together two or more computers to jointly solvea computational problem. Since the early 1990s there has been an increasing trend to moveaway from expensive....
Mesh-Type Architectures Study mesh, torus, and related interconnection schemes: • Modern parallel machines are mesh- or torus-based • Scalability and speed due to short, regular wiring • Enhanced meshes, variants, and derivative networks ....
