Dependence of efficiency on the number of cores is a very important characteristic of scalability solver based on which one can predict the scaling limit. For simplicity we consider only one option for the solver, using the asynchronous version of the MPI exchanges Isend() + Irecv(). It is seen that the dependence of the efficiency of parallelization of the solver is linear or nearly linear, with a gradual drop in effectivity with increasing number of cores used
