Says the EE Times:
Intel's researchers have produced an 80-core chip that uses less energy than a quad-core processor and has teraflop performance capabilities.
I know that (super)computing is getting weird, what with GPUs and Cell and the like. But it seems to be getting weirder faster than expected. I still don't understand: will the commodity processor of 2010-2015 be a homogeneous, multi-core, general purpose system, or a heterogeneous system with GPUs, CPUs, etc.?
