This book highlights how software developers can use Hyper-Threading Technology to maximize processor throughput, efficiency, and parallelism. It is a practical, hands-on volume with immediately usable code examples that enable readers to quickly master the necessary building blocks.
Hyper-Threading Technology allows one physical processor to execute the instructions of multiple threads simultaneously, making the processor appear as two processors to the operating system. Likewise, Hyper-Threading Technology also enables a single processor to run two different programs at the same time without the delay of switching between them.
The companion CD-ROM contains threading and optimization tools, code samples, and extensive technical documentation on Hyper-Threading Technology....Continua
