Can Traditional Programming Bridge the Ninja Performance Gap for Parallel Computing Applications?

Can Traditional Programming Bridge the Ninja Performance Gap for Parallel Computing Applications?

Current processor trends of integrating more cores with SIMD units have made it more to extract performance from applications. It is believed that traditional approaches to programming do not apply to these processors. We question
