Here I have covered few things,

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

      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 ?
