One-way processor vendors provide the desired scalability with a single architecture is to include both single- and dual-core platforms. The goal with a multi-core processor is to allow nearly ideal scaling without overcomplicating the programming model. For example, in a dual-core system, the goal is to achieve as close to a 2x performance increase as possible.

The article discusses the most common programming techniques for maximising performance, as well as system-related topics that commonly arise when porting to a dual-core processor.
