EE Times reports Tilera revealed more information about its third-gen multi-core processor series, which is headlined by an SoC with 100 64-bit cores. You can read more over here. These chips are intended for cloud computing, digital video transcoding, wireless infrastructure and advanced networking applications.
Presenting at the Linely Tech Processor Conference here, Bob Doud, director of marketing at Tilera, said the company's Tile-Gx product line would offer performance increases of two to eight fold compared to the company's current TilePro family. Doud said 16- and 36-core Tile-Gx devices would be sampling by the end of this year and that 64- and 100-core iterations of the family would begin sampling in mid-2011.
The 100-core Tile-Gx100, first announced by Tilera last October, will feature clock speeds of between 1 Ghz and 1.5 GHz, 32 megabytes of total cache and 546 gigabit per second peak memory.
