100-core processors coming in 2010

As it's report in IT PRO, processor company Tilera has announced that it expects to ship a 100-core processor next year.Tilera claims its new chips will offer 10 times the efficiency of Intel's next-generation Westmere.

According to the IT PRO,The TILE-Gx chips will be available as 16, 36, 64 and 100-core chips, but it's unlikely we'll be seeing them anywhere near desktop systems: Tilera says the new chips will target enterprise-level hardware such as servers used for cloud computing.

The company claims the new chips will offer 10 times the efficiency of Intel's next-generation Westmere chips, and that power consumption of the 40nm parts will range between 10 and 55 watts. Top clock speed will be a modest 1.5GHz.

The 36-core version of the TILE-Gx will start sampling towards the end of this year. Tilera says the 64 and 100-core versions will roll out at some point in the first two quarters of 2010.

Lots of cores for number-crunching servers. Too slow for us gamers.
I hope they can eventually get back closer to Moore's law. We need
more speed! 5ghz or better (before overclocking).

Haha.. those things remind me of the Via CPUs, largely crap :p Sadly all that can currently be done is tweak microarchitecture for performance gains, from a factory speed binning standpoint sillicon has reached its practical limits around 3.2GHz. Faster than that CPUs would (and have) got monstrously expensive. A good example would be how cheap PC6400 compared to even being able to find some PC9500, nevermind how expensive PC9500 is.
