Something I Have Been Thinking About

As recent technology trends usher us into the multicore era, Amdahl’s law is still relevant. Amdahl’s equations assume, however, that the computation problem size doesn’t change when running on enhanced machines. That is, the frac- tion of a program that is parallelizable remains fixed.
In case you are a little lost right now …
In parallel computing, Amdahl’s law is mainly used to predict the theoretical maximum speedup for program processing using multiple processors. This term is also known as Amdahl’s argument.
So if you didn’t know, you do now!
