Default AMD Proposes Hardware Methods to Boost Multi-Core Processors’ Performance

Advanced Micro Devices has announced a technology, which will allow future multi-core microprocessors to choose the best way of execution themselves, improving performance and making it easier to create software for multi-core microprocessors. The new tech may also eventually help the world’s second largest chipmaker to promote general purpose computing on graphics processors.

For years programming for multi-processor or multi-core machines has been a complex task, as software developers had to parallelize their code to take advantage of numerous processing engines. In the recent years this task has gained importance dramatically, as dual-core chips became widespread, however, efficient programming for such computers did not become much easier than before. But Advanced Micro Devices believes that it had found a way to solve this, as its newly-introduced Light-Weight Profiling (LWP) technology will allow chips to decide the most efficient way of execution themselves.
