The advent of homogeneous many-core processors has been widely noticed as a major shift in the architecture of commodity computer systems. It has influenced the design of operating systems and programming models and gives a boost to high-level parallelization libraries. Future commodity systems will combine homogeneous many-core processors with graphical processing units and other special purpose accelerators to a new class of architecture called hybrid system. These systems provide improved hardware support for specialized computational tasks of different applications. In contrast to the programming for homogeneous architectures with existing tools, programming for such hybrid architectures is still in its infancy.
