Scientists have created an ultra-fast computer chip which is 20 times faster than current desktop computers.

Modern PCs have a processor with two, four or sometimes 16 cores to carry out tasks.

But the central processing unit (CPU) developed by the researchers effectively had 1,000 cores on a single chip.

I love how they pretty much made a 1,000 core cpu the same day intel says it is possible.

250x more cores and only 20x faster?

Yeah decreasing marginal returns and all that jazz, but... really?!

This enabled the team to divide up the transistors within the chip into small groups and ask each to perform a different task.
By creating more than 1,000 mini-circuits within the FPGA chip, the researchers effectively turned the chip into a 1,000-core processor - each core working on its own instructions.
Is the article being accurate in substituting "cores" for "mini-circuits," assuming the latter is even a real term?

I don't really care how many cores they make, but don't ask for $1000 price tag. We're almost broke for pc game built.
