Other Multi-Threaded Applications

New version of Excel 2007 is a good example of an application dealing with parallel calculations. The test measuring the time its takes the system to calculate an electronic table using Monte-Carlo algorithm for an economy problem is a great proof of that.

Data compression is another type of tasks that benefits greatly from additional computational cores in the system. Although archiving utilities are quite demanding to the memory subsystem performance, eight-core Intel V8 platform with relatively slow FB DDR2-667 SDRAM works much faster than a Core 2 Extreme QX6800 platform with high-performance DDR2 SDRAM.
