This was the book I read in college for my graduate level Computer Science class. Man...

Major changes since 2006 - the proliferation of multi-cores... the direction is to have many many cores.. we are talking about 128, 256, etc.
I used the 1st edition back in the day. 99 cents!!! That's crazy cheap.

By 2006, multi cpus were already plentiful. I had already been using machines with up to10's of 1000's of cores for a 15 years by then. My desktop had 8 cpus.
