IT-Director.com: Readers of these pages will have noticed that Concertant is described as being both an HPC and an HFC practice. While HPC clearly stands for High Performance Computing, what does HFC mean? The answer is High Functionality Computing. An odd thing to link to HPC? perhaps not. Read on.
Today's multi-core processors (MCPs) offer a window on the future of processor design. They signal the way that all our businesses are going to go: businesses will be run on and by MCPs and we aren't just talking about servers here. Intel, AMD and others are solidly targeting the desktop. MCPs have now ‘arrived' (although they are still relatively in their infancy), there is no doubt that they have the potential to offer much, much more than they do at present.
