All software needs to be parallel

I often use this slide to show why all software has to be aware of parallel processing now.


In short, if your software does not exploit parallel processing techniques, then your code is limited to less than 2% of the potential performance of the processor. And this is just for a single processor - it is even more critical if the code has to run on a cluster or a supercomputer.
