The hardware accelerators proposed achieved different speedups over a traditional general purpose processor.
Our objective is to solve the system of linear equations using computers equipped with either single core or multi-core processor and compare the speedups achieved, as most of the academic and research community tends to use a dedicated computer to solve their problems.
Many of those speedups appear at depths of around 2,900 kilometers, says Jung-Fu Lin, a geophysicist at the Lawrence Livermore (Calif.) National Laboratory.

"Assembly-line speedups continue to cause excessive injuries, stifling heat and oppressive working conditions remain, ill and injured employees are forced to stay on the line or be fired, and, yes, doors are still locked from the outside."
An SMT processor can uniquely exploit whichever type of parallelism is available, thereby utilizing the functional units more effectively to achieve the goals of greater throughput and significant program speedups.
