    Phoronix: GCC To Receive Automatic Parallelization Support

    IBM's Razya Ladelsky today outlined plans for providing automatic parallelization support within the GNU Compiler Collection. The Graphite Framework, which provides high-level loop optimizations based upon the polyhedral model, was merged for the forthcoming release of GCC 4.4 and it will be used eventually to provide some level of automatic parallelization support...

              Haha, you wish! No, they simply rebuild.

                i would imagine they first open their tower, take out any pci cards etc, then disconnect cables, then loosen the screws, take the board out, replaces the backpanel, and then put the new stuff in and connect etc...
