WHILE the X86 world hops from one to two processing cores, startup Azul Systems plans to integrate 48 cores on its second-generation Vega chip, expected next year.
Not out yet. So dual cores are still impressive, lmao!

Im sure with that you can have like 128gb of ram, lol

the same company has 24 cores on a proc, so no dual core is still not that impressive! :P

Too expensive for personal use. Probably just used for corporate or Supercomputer use.

That is just so impractical for everyday use. There are very few computers in the world that would utilize such technology in todays standards.

Banks, Government, large corperations.

Those are the only people that would use it. But the Gonverment makes their own.. So oh well. Anyways.. you would think it would take half the processors, to keep the other half running. Its so much, its like it would bottle neck itself.

I wonder if they can use a whole bunch of them for supercomputer tasks...kind of like IBM's Blue Gene/L Supercomputer, which has a theoretical peak performance of 360 TFLOPS, and scores over 280 TFLOPS sustained on the Linpack benchmark (sustained). The entire Blue Gene/L system has 131,072 CPU cores and takes up 64 cabinets and 2,500 square feet.

The IBM Blue Gene Architecture:

Never heard of that before. Thats amazing. I mean I knew there were super computers, but I thought only the goverment had things that powerfull, you know.. that unpublsihed technology. Wow, thats awesome though

When in doubt, use Wikipedia.

I wonder if processors in the home will start to be able to process 3D just like GPU's can? I mean, if cores keep increasing to get better performance, the idea of using them for pipelines for 3D games doesn't seem too off cue does it? Or rendering for that matter?

Who knows man...

if you have like... 4 cores in a CPU... and MAYBE two are getting used... those extra two cores would probably be well spent on graphics rendering.. but who knows..

But i totally agree, 48 cores is just plain impractical. Maybe for a super computer that requires MAJOR number crunching power... but otherwise this is a useless invention to the likes of us.

Forget about lag. Haha, talk about summmorpg, super ultra mega mass multiplayer online rpg. Anyway, 48 cores is nice and all, but in the war between amd and intel, it's not always about cores. Does anyone know the processing speed?

PS: sorry for bumping this.
