The TILE-Gx72 is the Tilera’s highest-performance, highest-efficiency many-core processor.
The new Tile-Gx9 chip can tackle at least nine tasks at the same time, and it does so while consuming less than 10 watts of power, a level that puts it on par with chips that go into low-power laptops or tablet computers.
Adapteva is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter in an ambitious, last-ditch effort to create a $99 supercomputer for the masses.
Tilera is announcing today it has launched new cloud computing processors with either 16 or 36 computing brains, or cores.
Tilera has been arguing for some time that its chips with 64 processing cores are more energy-efficient than typical Intel processors. But now Facebook is backing it up on that.
Tilera, a maker of chips with many brains, is announcing a third generation of chips today that it says will be ten times better in performance and power comparisons than the standard Intel chips that go into internet-connected data centers.
