As microprocessors reach the limits of attainable clock frequencies and acceptable power consumption, Intel and AMD are scaling up the number of cores per chip, thereby enabling higher degrees of parallelism. To take advantage of potential and only-modest speed improvements, existing software must be modified. This slow down in growth of computer power presents a challenge to the business community.
Hardware acceleration, and FPGA computing in particular, are emerging as a powerful solution to overcome the slowdown of scaling with traditional processors.
