Researcher discovers new way to double computer speeds for free – but there’s an obvious catch: it may only work with Nvidia GPU and Arm CPU for now

A researcher claims to have discovered a new approach that could potentially double the speed of computers without additional hardware costs.

The method, called Simultaneous and Heterogeneous Multithreading (SHMT), was set out in a paper co-authored by UC Riverside associate professor of electrical and computer engineering Hung-Wei Tseng with computer science graduate student Kuan-Chieh Hsu.
