  • 2. The Wheel of Reincarnation

  • 4. More than one turn around the wheel? stream processors → raster processor → display chip
  • 5. The conclusion in 1968
  • 6. The conclusion in 2008? Asymmetric/heterogeneous multiprocessing is hard. (multiple memory models, different CPU characteristics) But…serial CPUs aren’t getting faster But…most programs are serial and need a fast serial CPU But…1000 Pentium M’s (Intel Core) aren’t coming to desktops Natural tendency to few beefy CPUs + zillions of simple ones… GPGPU (Nvidia Tesla/AMD Firestream)? Cell processors? Intel Larrabee? Something else?
