NO RATINGS
It is sad to see Pat Gelsinger still talking about multithreading at this late stage of the multicore game. It's enough to make a grown man cry. Pat, I hate to sound condescending but the multithreading approach to parallel programming is the problem, not the solution. It is the reason that, after forty some years of research, we now have a parallel programming crisis. Unless the leadership at Intel comes to realize the inconvenient truth that the solution to the crisis is to do away with threads altogether, I am afraid that the industry is marching straight toward a disaster of its own making. It's a disaster that will hit your multicore customers deep in their pockets to the tune of billions of dollars. Forgiveness will be scarce, I guarantee you that. Google "How to Solve the Parallel Programming Crisis" or "Nightmare on Core Street" to find out more. Being a behemoth is no guarantee of survival in this business. Don't say you weren't warned because I just did.
