Submission + - Adapteva Kickstarts Hundred-Dollar Supercomputer (kickstarter.com) 4

An anonymous reader writes: Fabless chip vendor Adapteva Inc. has launched Parallella, a Kickstarter initiative that could fund the development of the startup’s multicore processors and create an open source community for parallel programming.

The startup is asking for $750,000 to pay for a mask set for its 16-core Epiphany chip. If it gets the money it promises to deliver a $99 reference board for the chip. With two days left, they are just about $100,000 short of their goal.

The parallela hardware is a credit-card sized board with an A9 dual core chip running Ubuntu 12.04, connected to their 16 core epiphany chip, offering a total of over 20GFlops of computing for only 5 watts of power.
