Life is good. This is based on Intel's X86 architecture:

I imagine thats a few decades down the road from actual production

Sorry Skildude:

Intel said the SCC would be made officially available during the first half of 2010. More details will be released at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco on 8 February, 2010.


There's a video here http://www.intel.com/pressroom/archive/releases/2009/20091202comp_sm.htm on the Intel site.

The develoment was done at Intel labs in USA, Germany and India. Microsoft said it had already put SCC into its development pipeline.

I'm hoping to see it in PCs by late 2011. Glass half full - not half empty :-)

I bet its going to be used for high end servers. they also didnt mention any core speeds. I have to assume they are going to start at a fairly low Ghz and eventually work their way up from there. still 48 and eventually 80 cores will be nice.

I wonder if AMD is going to have anything to compete with this. Since they already have ATI and now dominate powerwise the GPU market.

Just think how many more top cards they would sell if they helped the Lunatics get their cards working on Seti. I would have bought 2 already.

The kitties would like to play in the clouds.............

But I suspect this will be out of the price range of us mere mortals for some time to come.

But what an advance in technology!

Tilera will be releasing a 100 core CPU early next year. Unfortunately not on x86 platform and won't run windowz. Apparently x86 programs will just require a recompile to work. Overall computing power expected to be 4 times that of the i7 975XE, using just 45 watts. It would be exciting to have a 3rd mainstream CPU manufacturer.

They don't need to...just look at what Collatz and MilkyWay have done for ATI sales....

I bet the sales we would generate would be worth a bit of time and a card or two.

Sky net is actually the machine name of one of the computers in a Nebraska U.S. Air force weather monitoring facility. So not exactly knowing the us government is running sky net right now.

I've been keeping up with AMD's timeline for a while now, and the Magny Cours plan is still slated for somewhere in mid 2010. That will start with 12 cores and later 16. I believe I read an article that mentioned AMD plans to be able to go to 24 cores on that same platform.

I think AMD should be able to keep up just fine though. The "uber-cores" race certainly won't be a one-horse race, but it also might not be a close race, either.

I have no dobut that no matter how many cores are on a chip the AMD will always be a more affordable chip

Yup....and a Yugo will always be a more affordable car.
