Apart from memory bandwidth, one more important factor that influence
scalable performance of multithreaded program is lock-contention. I have
observed that compared to memory bandwidth, most of the PARSEC programs are
not scalable on a multicore machine with a large number of cores (e.g. 64
core machine) is because of lock-contention.
