Serial versus Vector Machine


The above graph compares a vector computer with a high performance serial computer. The logarithmic QUIPS is plotted on the y-scale. NetQUIPS of the above vector computer is nearly twice as fast as the high performance serial computer. The HINT code was rewritten to suit the vector computer. On a vector computer, the speedup of vector HINT with respect to serial HINT is around 8.
