re: Parallelization tool for Tegra to show at ESC

@Larry Expert programmers may be able to juggle these things for CPU-GPU interactions and dual-core set ups but I think the problems increase exponentially with core number. It may become too complex to optimize fully some problems beyond 4 cores or so but machines running software will have a better chance of being rigorous and avoiding software deadlocks and race conditions than humans.
