This is not precisely seashore analyzing, yet it is not presupposed to be. I initially obtained this publication for a graduate point university path, and located the booklet to be virtually exhaustive in it truly is assurance. i will not suggest it for the informal reader, yet as a reference consultant, this is often essentially the most desirable for laptop structure.

18 Seven different desktop systems from five vendors using seven different microprocessors showing the processor, its clock rate, and the selling price. All these systems are configured with 512 MB of ECC SDRAM, a high-end graphics system (which is not the highest performance system available for the more expensive platforms), and approximately 20 GB of disk. Many factors are responsible for the wide variation in price despite this common elements. First, the systems offer different levels of expandability (with the Prescario system being the least expandable, the Dell systems and Sunblade 100 being moderately expandable, nd the HP, IBM, and Sunblade 1000 being very flexible and expandable).

Take Advantage of Parallelism Taking advantage of parallelism is one of the most important methods for improving performance. We give three brief examples, which are expounded on in later chapters. Our first example is the use of parallelism at the system level. To improve the throughput performance on a typical server benchmark, such as SPECWeb or TPC, multiple processors and multiple disks can be used. The workload of handling requests can then be spread among the CPUs or disks resulting in improved throughput.
