Interesting. So what was wrong with the Multicore Association? OK. The MA obviously has failed as I predicted years ago, but what does this new group bring to the table that the MA did not? The answer is nothing, of course. Otherwise, they would have announced it. ; The very fact that this group wants to take advantage of "industry-leading multi-core processors" tells me that they don't have a clue. What I mean is that they got it @ss-backward like everyone else. Why? Because you don't design and create a software model to accommodate a new processor. It's the other way around. You design and create a processor to support a new software model. In other words, come up with the software model first. Only after you're satisfied with it should you even begin to think about designing a processor to support it. It's common sense, no? | If those companies really want to find out how to do it the right way, they should Google "How to Solve the Parallel Programming Crisis". Otherwise, they should get ready to fail just like the Multicore Association before them. Good luck.
