Optimize Managed Code For Multi-Core Machines

Multi-processor machines are now becoming standard while the speed increases of single processors have slowed down. The key to performance improvements is therefore to run a program on multiple processors in parallel. Unfortunately, it is still very hard to write algorithms that actually take advantage of those multiple processors. In fact, most applications use just a single core and see no speed improvements when run on a multi-core machine. We need to write our programs in a new way.


Very cool... just wish it were available now.

I actually posted a short summary of this article on my blog just before the online version of the article became available. The Parallel FX Library sounds pretty cool; I hope it doesn't take them too long to bake this stuff into the framework itself.
