    Default GCC To Receive Automatic Parallelization Support

    Phoronix: GCC To Receive Automatic Parallelization Support

    IBM's Razya Ladelsky today outlined plans for providing automatic parallelization support within the GNU Compiler Collection.

    i would imagine they first open their tower, take out any pci cards etc, then disconnect cables, then loosen the screws, take the board out, replaces the backpanel, and then put the new stuff in and connect etc...
