Intel recently showcased its 48-core, single-chip cloud computer system (SCC) at a research event in Mountain View, California.
The experimental system - which debuted in December 2009 - has already been shipped to over 100 academic institutions and key partners, including Microsoft, UC Berkeley and the University of Illinois.
An Intel rep told TechEye that the SCC integrates many important features found in today's Cloud datacenters into silicon, such as a packet-based mesh network and support for message-passing programming models.
Mamma mia , 48 core. Nel giro di due anni arriveranno sicuramente al consumer.
