The article discusses the multicore processing in computers. Jim Turley, of the consultants SiliconInsider, mulitcore processing has reached the performance limit and is now pursued as a power-saving technique. Jim also mentions that adding extra central processing units (CPU) does not increase performance. David May, an expert on parallel processing, had predicted two years ago that the efforts to get tasks spread evenly across multiple cores will fail.
