Multi Threading

Background

Power and heat limitations in server rooms are driving hardware manufacturers to exploit multi-chip and multi-core approaches. In general, multi-core microprocessors allow computing devices to exhibit some form of thread-level parallelism (TLP), without using multiple microprocessors in separate physical packages. This form of TLP is known as chip-level processing or CMP. This novel packaging technique improves performance in many cases, without generating increased demands for greater cooling capacity.
