As technology has advanced, Parallel Computing and Architecture has emerged as a research area with the potential of providing satisfactory and faster result for real time applications. Parallel architecture is those that emphasize on parallel and concurrent computation among different processors. This paper presents a thorough survey of the parallel architecture and performane is analysed on the basis of the execution time of few parallel sorting algorithms in multicore processors .To implement these algorithms we have used C programming language with OpenMp Libraries under Linux environment.
