Intel 50-core Knights Corner promises 1 teraFLOPS

Posted on Wednesday, November 16 2011 @ 22:16:55 CET by

Intel demonstrated Knights Corner, an upcoming 22nm "compute accelerator" that promises the deliver a double precision floating point performance of 1 teraFLOPS. The chip will be Intel's first commercially available many integrated cores (MIC) architecture product, it features 50 cores and will compete with GPUs like NVIDIA's Tesla. The launch date of this Larrabee on steroids is still unknown.
Knights Corner, the first commercial Intel MIC architecture product, will be manufactured using Intel’s latest 3D tri-gate 22nm transistor process and will feature more than 50 cores. When available, Intel MIC products will offer both high performance from an architecture specifically designed to process highly parallel workloads, and compatibility with existing x86 programming model and tools. One of the benefits of Intel MIC architecture is the ability to run existing applications without the need to port the code to a new programming environment. This will allow scientists to use both CPU and co-processor performance simultaneously with existing x86 based applications, dramatically saving time, cost and resources that would otherwise be needed to rewrite them to alternative proprietary languages.
