Submission + - Tilera building a 100 core CPU (

primesuspect writes: Tilera is building a 10x10 mesh CPU capable of running Linux. The Tile-Gx100 uses an array of 10×10 cores linked with a mesh interconnect system dubbed “iMesh” and 256kb of L2 cache per core for a 26MB virtual L3 cache. The Tile-Gx100 processor will purportedly offer performance exceeding Intel’s forthcoming 8-core 16-thread Nehalem CPU “by a factor of four running Linux infrastructure workloads”.
