Over the years software development has relied on increasing processor clock speeds to achieve better performance. For better or worse though the trend has changed to adding more processing cores. Generally speaking, software development hasn’t adjusted to account for this transition. As a result many applications aren’t taking full advantage of the underlying platform and therefore they’re not performing as well as they could. In order to take advantage of multi-core and multi-processor systems though we need to change the way we write code. We'll see how the Parallel Extensions in .NET 4 make it easier to include parallel processing in your software.
