Microsoft tweaking Windows 7 for parallel processing

Posted on Wednesday, October 01 2008 @ 21:42:35 CEST by

Microsoft unveiled the next version of Windows will feature changes designed to improve parallel-processing support:
I asked Microsoft for more specifics as to what’s changing in Windows 7 with regard to parallel-processing support. A spokeswoman said “Microsoft is not commenting on this level of detail regarding Windows 7 yet.”

I got a few hints about what’s on the drawing board, however, from Craig Mundie, Microsoft’s Chief Research and Strategy Officer.

“Win32 was never designed for highly concurrent, asynchronous processing,” said Mundie during a recent interview I had with him last week at the Emerging Technology Conference in Cambridge, Mass.

“Parallelism requires adjustments at every level of the stack,” Mundie acknowledged. It involves “the repartitioning of different tasks to different layers….So look for a rebalancing of roles and runtimes. We need to formalize that in the operating system. Expect the first pieces in the next generation of Windows.”
