Data packing vs processing speed on low-cost massively parallel systems: A case study
This work presents some considerations on the hardware organization of the external memory in low-cost massively parallel systems and discusses a few basic criteria for the development of efficient algorithms. These criteria are illustrated with the help of a case study.
