Unformatted text preview: de the block. The answer is B. The reasoning is as follows: P1 will take K1*T(P1)=K1*1= K1 ut. P2 will take K2*T(P2)=2K1*1.5 T(P1) = 2K1
*1.5 = 3 K1 ut P3 will take K3*T(P3)=3K1*0.5 T(P1) = 3K1
*0.5 = 1.5K1 ut. So, B. As shown above, A is false, C is also false
because P3 takes half the time taken by P2, D is
false because the overall time taken is the time
taken by the slowest copy, i.e., P2. 1. No independent processing units, therefore achieving the same speed up is harder. 2. The interconnect is shorter (typically, custom
built) therefore latency tends to be smaller. 3. Locality eﬀects are someFmes a feature of the physical world. For example, in a company that is spread geographically, there’s a performance beneﬁt in keeping local the data about locals, say, keeping data about Manchester employees in Manchester. This avoids paying the transport cost into the remote parallel processor. MCQ answer is B. In SISD, there is only one M
element, so we fetch exactly one element of either (or both) at a Fme and ﬁring is always of one P
element on one D
element. In SIMD, there are more than one M
elements, say k, so we f...
