"Just When We Got Cozy with Quad Core..."

Dell brings up the 80-core chip

Yesterday, Michael Dell, at SC08, in a conference in Austin Texas on high-performance computing, he talked about a fast track toward 80 cores "Real-Soon-Now".


Intel's Dunnington processor will have 6 cores, Sun Microsystem's "Rock" processor will have 16 cores, while the Larrabee graphics chip may soon reach 32 cores.

It boggles the mind.
