Anand heeft een nieuw Multiprocessing artikel in elkaar gezet. Hier een stukkie:
As you can see, the performance of single processor systems under multitasking environments is much lower than that of dual processor systems under the same conditions, which is to be expected. The interesting points to notice are that the difference between a dual Pentium II 266 and a single Pentium II 400 in general multitasking performance benchmarks still favors the single Pentium II 400 due to its sheer advantage in processing power over the dual 266. While that may not apply to high-end applications, it does apply to this scenario illustrated by AnandTech for the other type of multiprocessor user.
