How you can use multi-core and many-core power to increase the performance of your application flexibly – is what Parallel Computing in Visual Studio 2010. It’s flexible as it does not wait for us to change the code based on hardware power. If you are deploying your application to single core this approach will mostly work. Here I have covered few things,

.  The new “Task” API
.  Parallel LINQ (PLINQ)
.  Parallel.ForEach

I would recommend you to visit Daniel’s talk in PDC 2008 at https://channel9.msdn.com/pdc2008/TL26/

    I have a question...is there any connection between Intel IPP library and Visual Studio Parallel computing API ? Is there any benefit to using the Intel IPP library under the covers or should I just rely on the Visual studio native parallel APIs ?
