I stole most of this article from hackaday FYI Even though dual, quad, and octo-core CPUs have been around for a while, it’s a far cry from truly massive parallel computing platforms. The chip manufacturer Adapteva is looking to put dozens of CPUs in a small package with their Parallella project. As a bonus, they’re looking for funding on Kickstarter, and plan to open source their 16 and 64-core CPUs after funding is complete. With any luck, the Parallella multicore computer will be available for $99, much less than a comparable x86 multicore computer. It’ll certainly be interesting to see what the Parallella can do in the future. (I Did the rest of this article myself) Some AMAZING specs: Dual-core ARM A9 CPU Epiphany Multicore Accelerator (16 or 64 cores) 1GB RAM MicroSD Card USB 2.0 (two) Two general purpose expansion connectors Ethernet 10/100/1000 HDMI connection Ships with Ubuntu OS Ships with free open source Epiphany development tools that include C compiler, multicore debugger, Eclipse IDE, OpenCL SDK/compiler, and run time libraries. Dimensions are 3.4'' x 2.1'' 45GHz Not a typo you read me 45GHz!! $99 Once completed, the Parallella computer should deliver up to 45 GHz of equivalent CPU performance on a board the size of a credit card while consuming only 5 Watts under typical work loads. Counting GHz, this is more horsepower than a high end server costing thousands of dollars and consuming 400W.
