###### Question details

1. [16 marks] Amdahl's Law. For real numbers, two decimal places
are requested. a) Run serially, portion A of program P consumes 33
s, while portion B consumes 925 s. On a parallel computer,
moderately serial portion A speeds up four times, while perfectly
parallel portion B speeds up by the number of processors. i) What
is the speedup of program P on 1,024 processors? ii) How many
processors are required to achieve at least half the theoretical
maximum possible speedup on P? i) ______ times ii) ______
processors b) On a uniprocessor, moderately serial portion A of
program P consumes x% of the time, while perfectly parallel portion
B consumes the remaining (100 - x)%. On a parallel computer,
portion A speeds up by a factor of 3, while portion B speeds up by
the number of processors. i) Given 1,024 processors, how small must
'x' be so that the speedup on P is at least 128 times? ii) Using
this value of 'x', what is the theoretical maximum possible speedup
on P? i) x = ______ % ii) max su = ______ times
