Intel Shows 48-core x86 Processor as Single-chip Cloud Computer

48-cores ahoy!

Intel unveiled a completely new processor design today the company is dubbing the "Single-chip Cloud Computer" (but was previously codenamed Bangalore). Justin Rattner, the company's CTO, discussed the new product at a press event in Santa Clara and revealed some interesting information about the goals and design of the new CPU.

First, many of you will likely remember the original "Tera-scale" project that we reported on back in 2006 - at the time it included 80 cores on a single processor but was really just a technology showcase and a proof of concept.

That project and today's differ on quite a few levels. First, the "SCC" is much closer to a realized product as Intel has started looking into markets that will benefit from this type of computing power. Also, the architecture and design of the cores on the SCC are fully functional x86 IA cores where as on the original 80-core test chip we were simply looking at floating point processors.


The new SCC has also been tweaked for efficiency and can run with as little power as 25 watts!

This processor is meant for smartphones, despite all the buzzwords Apple has thrown with the cloud that consolidates your phone and home PC.

Ever notice how computers use a base of 8, not 10?

I have never noticed?

We won't probably see it hitting the market until 7-11 years from now.

So now we will have phones with huge heatsinks on the back and mini water coolers? Ha
