JS implementation of all time favorite game of life. Game Of Life -> link
Run your game of life on multicore.
... wait what?..... js multicore?.. what madness is that?
YES. that's right: Run your js in multithreaded!. Harness up to 100% CPU power.
Simply GOL done in distributed manner.
Install node and npm, node-gyp, bower and git, then:
npm i --save gol
and wait till other thread(s) will do the job
Then change first line of
index.js to use 2 or even 10 workers/threads,
and observe how much time to calculate whole game changes.
##Benchmark of calculations of game of life
10 workers (threads) vs 100times x 2x recalculate x 100xpartsOfWolrd 1: 6617ms 1: 5957ms 1: 5870ms
1 worker (single thread) vs 100times x 2xrecalculate x 100xpartsOfWolrd 1: 22223ms 1: 23846ms 1: 24604ms
Generally on 4 actual cores one can expect speedup of 3.9 times So short answer... yes it does.
Change first line from 1 to 2 or even 10 workers and run the script. Observe how the speed of world generation changes.... Isn't that exiting? If you feel particularly adventurous, you might even go for 50 threads. Do not worry.. they are quite light weight.
you know the
git clone cd npm install node index.js
tested on mac & windows
Need volunteer to run it in Linux!
