The **Amdahl's Law** calculator computes the speedup factor of execution for a total task based on the speedup factor of a portion of the task and the percent of that portion in relation to the total task..

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**P**) Portion (%) of Process Effected - (
**S**) Speedup Factor of Effected Portion

**Speedup (v):** The calculator returns the theoretical speedup of the whole task.

Amdahl's law is a model for the relationship between the expected speedup of parallelized implementations of an algorithm relative to the serial algorithm, under the assumption that the problem size remains the same when parallelized." {wikipedia} The Amdahl's Law calculator computes the speedup achievable from an improvement to a computation that affects a proportion P of that computation where the improvement has a speedup [factor] of S. The Amdahl's formula for speedup is:

`v = 1 /( (1-P) + P/S)`

where:

- v = speedup factor
- P = portion of the task accelerated
- S = speedup for the portion
