At 2 pm Pacific Time today. Multicore processors are forcing a rethink of hardware design as well as programming practices. Do you want multiple identical CPU cores or a mix of difference CPU cores for each task? What's the best way to harness all this horsepower? And do multicore chips really reduce power consumption or are they just performance overkill? Whatever the answers, multicore isn't going away. It's a design reality. Whether you're an engineer, a manager, or a programmer, a few intensive hours spent here will pay off now and down the road. See Tensilica's Chief Scientist Grant Martin address these and other questions.
