But Will It Scale?
By Jackson M (Intel)Posted 10/24/20120
Has this ever happened to you: You work tirelessly to add threads to your serial code, all your correctness tests are passing, and your application is zooming along almost twice as fast as the serial version on your 2 core machine. Now your friend sees your results and would love to run your prog...
