Submission + - New processor handles trillions of calculations

coondoggie writes: "The prototype of a revolutionary general-purpose computer processor, which has the potential of reaching trillions of calculations per second and handling massive applications, was unveiled by a team of computer scientists at The University of Texas at Austin today.The new processor, known as TRIPS (Tera-op, Reliable, Intelligently adaptive Processing System), could be used to accelerate industrial, consumer and scientific computing, the group said in a statement. Each TRIPS chip contains two processing cores, each of which can issue 16 operations per cycle with up to 1,024 instructions in flight simultaneously. Current high-performance processors are typically designed to sustain a maximum execution rate of four operations per cycle. http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/1445 8"
