Critical look at three of parallel computing's maxims


Journal Article

This paper takes a critical look at the following three maxims. 1. Parallel architecture is converging on a design based on commodity microprocessor chips. 2. Wormhole routing is decidedly more efficient than store-and-forward routing. 3. The PRAM is an unrealistically ideal model of computation.
