1000 Core Chip…”Feasible”

Huh?

That’s what I said… 1000 cores, can you imagine? I mean right now the best a consumer can get their hands on is an Octa Core Xeon MP X 7550, retailing for 2,873$. Intel has already designed the 48 Core SCC Processor and says it can theoretically be scalable to 1000 Cores! What would they even call that? OctaFloppenOneThousand? Sorry I had to throw something silly in there, because to think that we are going to have a 1000 Core Processor in the next ten years is “silly” But Possible!

I look forward to blogging about it!
