New intel 1000 core processor

I was recently talking with one of my teachers, and he was talking about a new processor that intel was doing some experemental work with that had 1000 cores. Hearing this my jaw dropped. a processor with 1000 cores? can it be true? my first thought was really, how long before i can have it? i am not too sure how fast each core is, but with 1000 cores, they can lack somewhat in the speed and i will not be offended.

This new processor is actuially more power efficent than most modern processors because it spends more time idly sitting and less time processing information. This is an interesting concept but i cannot see a use for my own personal use, considering i have a quad core and i barely use that on a daily basis.

  1. 1000 cores huh? That is crazy, I don't think there is anything I could ever do that would require that many cores!

  2. 1000 cores! Pretty crazy! I heard though the new Sandybridge processors have had an error in their name or something... Keep up the good work!

  3. 1000 cores thats fucking insane

  4. Im not going to hold my breath. 12 cores are still out of reach of most consumers.

  5. it was more in the experemental stages, like joe says, it probally wont be to the consumers for a long ass time but there is always dreaming :D

  6. 1000 cores is going to be really impressive.

  7. I'd have to read more about this. I'm sure we won't be seeing it for a decade anyway. Let's try to make it there in one piece first ;).

  8. is 1000 cores really necessary? there isn't anything out there that wouldn't need more than a Core 2 Quad.

  9. Pretty much just super computers

  10. And here I was thinking the new sandy bridge was a big improvement over my i5...haha

  11. I can't imagine that being small enough to fit in a computer.

  12. Damn... 1000?! Sounds like a lot of fun experimenting with that monstrosity.

  13. i heard about this too. It isnt intel though, its IBM (go figure.) And when you think about it, this isnt that far out. High-end GPUs have hundreds of cores already (512 cores is the best i think, i could be wrong) but ive seen a lot of 256-core GPUs.

    followed/morning coffee-d :)

  14. This just can't be true, at least not for a SINGLE UNIT processor, maybe for a whole datacentre, or a supercomputer, but otherwise no
