It's a Parallel Universe
In an effort to move forward, Intel dusts off old supercomputing technology
While the hardware problem of overheating chips lends itself nicely to the hardware solution of multicore computing, that solution gives rise in turn to a tricky software problem. How do you program for multiple processors? According to Robert X. Cringley in Parallel Universe, it's Intel's Anwar Ghuloum's job to figure that out, with the help of programming groups he manages in the U.S. and China.
