Re: Multicore
Yes we do need a change right now. A big one indeed. If not the interest on it will surely die and then it will be difficult

Intel Phi
Let's not forget that INtel has big plans for multi-core chips, too. Including one called Phi, a co-processor with a planned 60 cores running at 1.05 GHz and able to handle 240 threads at once. The chips has a performance of 1 teraflops in double-precision arithmetic.

Re: Multicore
Cores, cores, and more cores! It's the story of computing in this decade, I am quite sure.

Re: Multicore
I can't wait to see some kind of alternative to the x86 processor arise and gain sufficient traction to give it a good run for its money. It's getting boring, I must say, to see this architecture continue to dominate for as long as it has, since the 1970s, in fact.

Re: Multicore
Not only energy, there are other resources which are costly when you consider a data centre environment. As a single entity yes energy is the one.

Re: Multicore
It seems that the key for Tilera will be to develop a network of OEM relationships that can get its product in the door.

Energy is a significant cost in data centers, but there still aren't enough sites actively cost-measuring it.

Multicore
The multi-core processor architecture continues to impress. There are many of these designs afoot right now, all vying for customers' attention. The Tilera design looks like one of the more advanced ones, stuffing more cores onto a chip than its rivals. The question is, how much attention can the company garner from software developers.
