Created a 1000-core processor
Probably you are aware of multicore processors – even the phones already have eight cores on Board, and computer centers are already using builds that allow you to use much more multi-core chips. At UC Davis have developed a system KiloCore – in which a CPU contains 1000 cores – this system is very useful when a parallel computation as decrypting passwords, analysis of scientific models and video processing.
This chip is not so super due to the presence of such a number of cores for parallel computing, it`s all about opportunities to actively manage them. It is possible to actively regulate the work and the inclusion of the desired number of cores under a certain load. This system allows to save energy resources, which is very important in large data Centers. By the way, the chip consumes so little that it is able to work well by the feed element at 1.5 volts.
Unfortunately, this miracle of technology will not see mass production. The University has commissioned IBM to create a chip at a relatively old 32-nanometer technology, while currently on the market of chips for 14 nm technology in all uses. With high probability it can be argued that in near future there will be a similar system for mobile devices and the parameters they will be much better than those that were obtained in laboratory conditions.
