+ - Will Parallel Code Ever Be Embraced?->

Submitted by

CowboyRobot writes "Andrew Binstock at Dr. Dobb's has an essay in which he argues "The advent of the many-core era is not going to push developers to write more parallel code. That hasn't happened as we've gone from 1- to 2- to 4- to 8-core processors, has it? Writing parallel code is not the problem. So, let's stop trying to fix it." He suggests the solution is to "scale out" with more processes instead of scaling up with more threads per process. Does this make sense?"
