One of the recent innovations in computer engineering has been the development of multicore processors, which are composed of two or more independent cores in a single physical package. Today, many processors, including digital signal processors (DSPs), mobile, graphics, and general-purpose central processing units (CPUs) have a multicore design, driven by the demand of higher performance. Major CPU vendors have changed strategy away from increasing the raw clock rate to adding on-chip support for multithreading by increases in the number of cores; dual and quad-core processors are now commonplace. Signal and image processing programmers can benefit dramatically from these advances in hardware, by modifying single-threaded code to exploit parallelism to run on multiple cores.
