(A4) Parallel Computing Systems:
In parallel systems, large jobs are divided into smaller ones which are then processed simultaneously(hence, the name parallel). Since, the task is broken down, the efficiency largely increases.
Parallel computing has a number of advantages over other paradigms:
-It leads to a large increase in efficiency.
-It helps in power consumption.
It is the hence, the most dominant paradigm in computer architecture.
The disadvantages regarding parallel computing are:
-The processes difficult to write.
-Gives more scope for bugs to crawl in.
