Query Speedup Challenge outcomes.

(A): Scatter plot showing the relationship between speedups computed on the participants’ last submission with one single core (x-axis) and those with multiple cores (y-axis); observations lying on the 45 degrees line correspond to participants who did not use multi-threading in their final submission (with small variation around the line due to differences in the set of queries used to compute the speedups); (B): Plot showing differences in the scaling behavior between the benchmark and the top submission (on a log-log scale); for both, the displayed computation times are a median of 10 replicates.
