The current trend in microprocessor design is to keep the design simple while packing more processors on the same die in order to increase the performance. These chips are called Chip Multiprocessors (CMP) or Multicores. While currently the parallelism provided by the multiple cores is used to achieve higher throughput, it is possible to split a single application into multiple tasks and execute them in parallel.
