Available with 16, 36, 64, and up to 100 cores, the company claims its chips offer the highest performance of any microprocessor yet announced while operating efficiently at the same time.

    That is very cool, how long till we see these in our home PCs? Not that we will ever need that kind of pressing power but its more for the bragging rights sometimes.

    Its not really how long till we see these in our home PC's, its who the hell can figure out how to program something to use 100 cores at once. There are still issues getting it done for four, and The PS3's 7 have largely been unused as well.
  4. Tengeta: Didn't Hyper Threading (HT) try to achieve this with a single core? I know it was quite inefficient but it allowed for multiple (artificial) cores to deal with one execution thread, perhaps they could redesign the program so that multiple (actual) cores can deal with one execution thread?
