Tilera unveils first 100-core processor family

Posted on Monday, October 26 2009 @ 18:32:48 CET by


Chip designers Tilera has introduced the TILE-Gx family - four new server CPUs including world's first 100-core processor. The Tilera TILE-Gx100 is a 40nm chip with 100 cores, and there are also 16, 36, and 64-core versions. The 16-core model has a TD Pof 15W while the 100-core version uses up to 55W. All TILE Gx series chips have 32KB L1 l-cache, 32KB L1 D-cache, 256KB L2 cache, up to 26MB L3 cache and a frequency of up to 1.5GHz.
Tilera® Corporation today announced its new TILE-Gx™ family - four new processors from Tilera including the world's first 100-core processor: the TILE-Gx100™. The TILE-Gx100 offers the highest performance of any microprocessor yet announced by a factor of four. Moreover, the entire TILE-Gx family raises the bar for performance-per-watt to new levels with ten times better compute efficiency compared to Intel's next generation Westmere processor. And Tilera has simplified many-core programming with its breakthrough Multicore Development Environment™ (MDE) together with a growing ecosystem of operating system and software partners to enable rapid product deployment.

The TILE-Gx family - available with 16, 36, 64 and 100 cores - employs Tilera's unique architecture that scales well beyond the core count of traditional microprocessors. Tilera's two-dimensional iMesh™ interconnect eliminates the need for an on-chip bus and its Dynamic Distributed Cache (DDC™) system allows each cores' local cache to be shared coherently across the entire chip. These two key technologies enable the TILE Architecture™ performance to scale linearly with the number of cores on the chip - a feat that is currently unmatched.

“"The launch of the TILE-Gx family, including the world's first 100-core microprocessor, ushers in a new era of many-core processing. We believe this next generation of high-core count, ultra high-performance chips will open completely new computing possibilities,” said Omid Tahernia, Tilera's CEO. “Customers will be able to replace an entire board presently using a dozen or more chips with just one of our TILE-Gx processors, greatly simplifying the system architecture and resulting in reduced cost, power consumption, and PC board area. This is truly a remarkable technology achievement.”
