Scientists create 1,000-core FPGA

Posted on Friday, December 31 2010 @ 14:35:56 CET by


Engadget reports researchers at the University of Glasgow have crafted a 1,000 core processor:
We've already seen field programmable gate arrays (or FPGAs) used to create energy efficient supercomputers, but a team of researchers at the University of Glasgow led by Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede now say that they have "effectively" created a 1,000 core processor based on the technology. To do that, the researchers divvied up the millions of transistors in the FPGA into 1,000 mini-circuits that are each able to process their own instructions -- which, while still a proof of concept, has already proven to be about twenty times faster than "modern computers" in some early tests.
