Intel pledges 80 cores in five years

Intel has built a prototype of a processor with 80 cores that can perform a trillion floating point operations per second.

80 ftw! Which home user seriously needs 80 cores in a single processor. We're only just coming to terms with dual-core (not us, the general public) and quad-cores aren't something they are expecting. There's already been a 32 core from Sun Microsystems but 80!

Overkill IMHO!

32 cores or 32 threads? The UltraSPARC T1 runs 32 threads across 8 cores. Intel's silicon was made up of 80 simple floating point cores, designed to test various mechanisms of interconnecting cores and memory in order to maximise throughput.

You can send me $438.26 in cash (each), and I promise to remember you when they come out.

Is this the chip that was running at just under 2MHz in a 430TX board yet able to run windows xp!

Everything is going parrallel cpu wise. Intel are working on interconnects between cpu's and are heading in the right direction and hitting some serious amounts of b/w in a chip.

This is the monkey im refering to http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=34623
both seem to mention being prototype hardware and having terabit interconnects

Let me guess we'll have to pre-order RAM to help you remember us? Besides $410.00 seems way more reasonable!!

Thanks Keith! I just tumbled to what's going on here! 2MHZ! How close to a 200 MHZ CPU does a 80 core chip @ 2 Mhz come in it heat out put? I'll read the article! Thanks.

80 cores...that processor must be the size of a motherboard!

...just imagine the size of the motherboard!

No, the part you linked to is a different system. The chip being talked about at the top of this thread is a chip that is not IA32 compatible (So won't run Windows). There's no integer component, it's pure floating point. However, it is part of the same project, but a different part.

Not if each core is little more than a FPU with switch fabric. It's designed to allow the modelling of large scale high speed interconnects.

Here's what they were showing...prototype, already masked. Intel is here in town, and I'll be speaking with them later this afternoon.

Quote:
Intel announced the Intel Core Processor Challenge to award up to $1 million in prizes to the PC or CE manufacturers that designs the smallest, most stylish, multimedia optimized PCs based on Intel Viiv technology with Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The challenge is intended to speed up the availability of more stylish and smaller consumer PCs that have the performance and power efficiency thanks to Intel core 2 Duo processors, as well as the essential multimedia capabilities that Intel Viiv technology delivers, making them a great entertainment system for any room in the home. Systems will be evaluated on attributes of style, acoustics, functionality and features by an all-star panel of judges, and winners will be announced at the Spring IDF 2007! Intel will award the grand prize winner with up to $300,000 for hard tooling of their winning design and $400,000 for co-marketing activities with Intel for the winning design. The first place winner will receive up to $300,000 for hard tooling for their winning design. Systems submitted for the challenge will be rated early next year by a distinguished panel of judges with expertise in technology, design, fashion and style. The winner will be announced at the Spring Intel Developer Forum to be held March 20-22, 2007 in San Francisco. Additional details and criteria can be found here.
