Intel 48 Core processor!

Recommended Posts

I thought one of my friends was making it up when he told me about this =/ I thought it was like having a 10-bladed razor. And is there really any point in having 48 cores? Seems that the core cloocks will be much lower and lower voltage too if it uses less watts. What effect will a slower clock speed but more cores have? Processes will have to be split between cores so surely quick bursts of data or large amounts of data will be slower? Either way this chip is crazy!!

Hello Larrabee?

Nah, it's not Larrabee (though it's similar in many ways).

 

It'd pretty much suck for desktop use considering how small each core is (which means very limited IPC compared to current processors). Even an Atom core would outpace any of these by quite a bit in general tasks. It'll be awesome for highly-parallel number crunching though!

I'd be interested in seeing the comparison between a higher clocked/less cores chip and this processor. I wonder where the advantage to more cores/slower speed begins.

When you have a ton of small operations (ie: anything graphics related)

Or when you need pure floating point power (ie: many things scientific).

LMAO @ Chuck Norris

 

I bet they will start to launch Chuck Norris products like they did with Fatal1ty ones.
