With core counts on the rise, the sequential components of applications are becoming the major bottleneck in performance scaling as predicted by Amdahl's law. We are therefore faced with the simultaneous problems of occupying an increasing number of cores and speeding up sequential sections. In this work, we reconcile these two seemingly incompatible problems with a novel programming model called N-way. The core idea behind N-way is to benefit from the algorithmic diversity available to express… CONTINUE READING
