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.
