Submission + - Princeton Researchers Announce Open Source 25-core Chip (princeton.edu) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers at Princeton announced at Hot Chips this week their 25-core Piton Processor (http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S47/19/67G69/?section=topstories). The processor was designed specifically to increase data center efficiency with novel architecture features enabling over 8,000 of these processors to be connected together to build a system with over 200,000 cores. Fabricated on IBM’s 32nm process and with over 460 Million transistors, Piton is one of the largest and most complex academic processors every built. The Princeton team has opened their design up and released all of the chip source code, tests, and infrastructure as open source in the OpenPiton (http://www.openpiton.org) project enabling others to build scalable manycore processors with potentially thousands of cores.
