A GPU is not quite like a CPU. And my head is a little to fuzzy to explain as to why. But their are reason as to why both still exist. Sorry is that was hard to get but yeah no sleep for the last days.

Ive got 1440 cores ( GPU ) and another 4 ( CPU ).

Haha just for kicks, another 3200 cores will be arriving soon.

So i'll have a grant total of . . . . 4644 cores in my machine

SUPER UBER CORES so I should be 80 x faster than the average home pc , if taken in that respect

I think they probably know that--it was to imply that we already have multi-core hardware available to us, which is useless unless programs are written to take advantage of them. Of course the way gpu's handle and process threads is going to be different from how cpu's do it, but that's because of how we create our applications, and the data they need to chug through. You could write programs to use gpu's to handle non-graphics-related applications. Folding@Home is the first thing that comes to mind. But there's very little incentive, and a lot of work overhead that needs to be taken into account to achieve that. Same thing would be true for truly harnessing the power of a 1000 core CPU for the mundane things we do day-to-day.

I don't understand, this article just makes a processing claim, then goes into the basics of FPGA's without mentioning frequencies/architecture/RISC/CISC or anything.....

And they use a pic of Xilinx's Virtex 4 line of FPGA's (just finished a class with their FPGA's: V2P PowerPC based). and although powerful compared to other Embedded platforms at the time of release, they have nothing on the modern CPU

These are great for ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) use but not for CPU's. And Xilinx has already moved on to Virtex 6 products....

And yet we still have trouble using more than 2....

Less cores, more speed pls... Srsly.

Now if people start coding for more cores... *does happy dance*

The reality of it is they most likely won't... *does sad dance*

It's the Daily Mail. A really quite poor paper designed for those with a lower literary standard. Has lots of pictures though...

This whole article is pointless. Everybody and there mother by now knows that 1,000 cores can lose to 1 core. I refuse to click back on this stupid article again but if you have to refer to the cores as "mini-circuits" then you aren't making a 1,000 core CPU. You are making some really stupid, dumbed down piece of crap that has pretty much been made multiple times by countless others.

err u go to conservative media to find out the latest celebrity boob job, generally not technology or science related news.
