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”.
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
