The computer industry has adopted multi-threaded and multi-core architectures as the clock rate increase stalled in early 2000's. It was hoped that the continuous improvement of single-program performance could be achieved through these architectures. However, traditional parallelizing compilers often fail to effectively parallelize general-purpose applications which typically have complex control flow and excessive pointer usage. Recently hardware techniques such as Transactional Memory (TM… CONTINUE READING
