speed vs. throughput in the real world
By walterbays on Aug 16, 2007
Performance engineers often talk about the difference between speed and throughput with respect to industry standard benchmarks, e.g. SPEC CPU2006. Glenn Fawcett wrote an excellent posting about that difference in the real world. Reading Glenn's scenario it's easy to see how technically able people can easily get it confused as we all adjust to the "CMT era."
