For example Intel,has alerady a new tech that leaves this 1000 core processor in the dust,replacing electronic signals with Lightbeams.
Maybe if you go the latest facilities of Intel you will se how well advanced they are right now.
Not to start a flame war, but this stuff is not ready for prime time.
Why not start with 12 or 16 cores, they haven't even mastered that yet?
If intel has technology today to create a processor that leaves a 1000 core processor in the dust, why are they pushing 6-core as their top of the line processor?
They may have technology that allows them to possibly get there some day, but don't kid yourself that this is somehow technology just waiting.
Everyone has science experiments, but what becomes product can be very different.
