Software gets to the coresOne certainty in this business is watching the pendulum swing. One year, hardware gets most of the attention; the next year, software takes center stage. After a period of deafening buzz about multicore processing, the next swing seems to be heading back in the direction of software as the battlefield for competitive advantage.
It’s logical that an increase in hardware complexity and capability would be followed by attempts to get software caught up and, judging from recent announcements, that appears to be the case. Designers don’t want to spend time optimizing code to run on multiple cores, so they have looked for new tools to optimize software for execution on multiple cores and processors, like OpenMP o Codeplay Sieve C++ Parallel Processing System.
