Multi-core and many-core were already major trends for the past six years and are expected to continue for the next decade. With these trends of parallel computing, it becomes increasingly difficult to decide on which processor to run a given application, mainly because the programming of these processors has become increasingly challenging. In this paper, the authors present a model to predict the performance of a given application on a multi-core or many-core processor. Since programming these processors can be challenging and time consuming, their model does not require source code to be available for the target processor.
