Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grosch's law is the following observation of computer performance made by Herb Grosch in 1965: There is a fundamental rule, which I modestly call Grosch's law, giving added economy only as the square root of the increase in speed -- that is, to do a calculation 10 times as cheaply you must do it 100 times as fast. This adage is more commonly stated as Computer performance increases as the square of the cost. If computer A costs twice as much as computer B, you should expect computer A to be four times as fast as computer B.show more
