The Parallel Power Law

18 Feb 2010

Do a job with 2X the parallelism and use 4X less power – if the hardware is designed right.

Lowering power consumption is selling devices (laptops, phones) these days through increased battery life. I think making proper use of parallelism is going to be critical for the next generation of devices - one manufacturer pushing forward will yield competitive market forces toward parallellism.
