    Basically, they are building the Los Angeles of processors - a bunch of processor cores connected directly together to make one big mammajamma processor. I am guessing their target demographic will be website servers that need a LOT of bandwidth to handle all the traffic. Basically, a processor like that will keep the website from bogging down. I sure a lot of pornsites would love to have them.

    So Intel and AMD are currently pushing processors with 2 processing cores. So that you have 2 processors on a single chip (sort of). Intel announced last month that sometime Q1 2007 they will release a Quad core chip (4 processors on a single chip). For the most part the average home user won't see a significant speed increase with a Dual Core processor over a single core using the same architecture. Even fewer people will actaully use a Quad Core. Nothing outside of hardcore graphics rendering, fluid modeling, or other processor intensive programs will need 80 cores.

    [comp nerd = on]
    Unless they are following more of a cell arch with this.

    Fluent, Floworks, here comes the quad cores!!! I remember running the CFD on our aircraft models; the computations would sometimes take several hours on pentium 4 2.53ghz machines.
