IBM presents Kilocore processor technology with 1025 cores

Posted on Wednesday, April 05 2006 @ 16:59:50 CEST by

IBM today presented a blueprint of the Kilocore1025, this is a processor with a total of 1025 cores! The company says this boosts processing speed but also enables the chip to operate at low power levels.
According to IBM, processors with massive concentrations of individual cores may not be that far away as we thought. Rapport and IBM, both members of Power.org, today provided a glimpse at the design of the Kilocore1025 at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose. The blueprint showed a central PowerPC that was complemented by 1024 (that is one thousand and twenty four) 8-bit "processing elements" on a single and - according to IBM - low-cost die.

Rapport is already offering the Kilocore256, which comes with 256 processing elements and provides a performance of "25 GB operations/second at well under a single watt of power," IBM said. The firm claims that the Kilocores "feature the most advanced, dynamic architecture available today in working silicon" and imagines that the chips could be built into "compute-intensive applications, including mobile gaming, homeland security, server components, image processing, consumer electronics and suitcase supercomputing."
IBM says the processor will enable users to view live and high-def video on a lower-power, mobile device at five to ten times the speed of existing processors.
