Berkeley View on Parallel Computing

In Jonathan Erickson’s editorial for the September Dr. Dobb’s, he dropped this link to a Berkely page dedicate to the landscape of general parallel computing. I’ve seen stories similar to his editorial for a few years, now, and I think that both multicore and “manycore” computing are more than likely the near to mid-term form of personal computing. The popularity that multicore has enjoyed since Intel’s first forays into “hyperthreading” seems to bear this out.

The Berkeley page seems like a good resource to bookmark and watch in addition to keep an eagle out on the the news feeds for any breaking developments.
