The Parallel class
The Parallel class is optimized for iterations and its behavior is even better—in loops—than PLINQ, although the difference is not meaningful. However, there are situations in which a fine-tuning of loops can noticeably increase the user experience.
The class has variants of the
foreach methods (also
invoke, but it is rare to see this in practice), which can be used in loops when we think the performance can be clearly slowed down using the nonparallel versions.
If we take a look at the definition of the
Parallel.For version, we'll see that it receives a couple of numbers (
long) to define the scope of the loop and an
Action, which relates to the functionality to be executed.
Let's test this with a example that is ...
