Professional Multicore Programming: Design and Implementation for C++ Developers

Overview

In order to increase overall system performance, computer manufacturers have opted to add more processors rather than increase clock frequency. In turn, if you want an application to benefit from the next new processor, that application will have to be modified to exploit multiprocessor computers.

Overview

In order to increase overall system performance, computer manufacturers have opted to add more processors rather than increase clock frequency. In turn, if you want an application to benefit from the next new processor, that application will have to be modified to exploit multiprocessor computers. This practical book shifts the focus from sequential programming techniques to parallel and multithreaded programming techniques and introduces you to the everyday fundamentals of programming for multiprocessor and multithreaded architectures.

This duo of experienced authors takes the complicated topics of parallel processing and software concurrency and presents them in a clear, understandable manner. Their no-nonsense approach to programming multiprocessing and multithreading models, along with numerous helpful examples, demonstrates how to execute successful multicore programming and enables you to harness the power of the new multicore processors to their fullest potential.
