Amdahls law

Amdahl's law is a guideline for improving the performance of

computer systems. The basic idea is that a computer system works significantly faster if the most frequently used program cycle is accelerated. The improvement of the overall performance depends on the improvement of the individual performance and the frequency of use. The Amdahl law puts the various factors influencing the overall performance of a computer system in relation to each other. For this purpose, the new execution time is determined taking into account the old execution time, the unused and used computing power as well as the acceleration in execution.
