In this chapter, we will describe today’s technological trends on building a multi-core based microprocessor and its programmability and scalability issues. Ever since multi-core processors have been commercialized, we have seen many different multi-core processors. However, the issues related to how to utilize the physical parallelism of cores for software execution have not been suitably addressed so far. Compared to implementing multiple identical cores on a single chip, separating an original sequential program into multiple running threads has been an even more challenging task. In this chapter, we introduce several different software programs which can be successfully ported on the future multi-core based processors and describe how they could benefit from the multi-core systems. Towards the end, the future trends in the multi-core systems are overviewed.

Scheduling Large-Scale DNA Sequencing Applications
Multi-core represents a major evolution in the development of processor. A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together.

Multi-Threaded Architectures: Evolution, Costs, Opportunities
A multi-core processor is a processing system composed of two or more independent cores. It can be described as an integrated circuit to which two or more individual processors (called cores in this sense) have been attached.
