Intel: Why a 1,000-core chip is feasible

Let's get a few things straight -- there aren't any 1,000 processors on the horizon, there's no such chip on Intel's processor roadmap, and we've yet to really tap into the computing power of today's multi-core architectures. Got it? Great, let's move on.

Despite the above disclaimers, Intel engineer Timothy Mattson was more than willing to sit and talk with ZDNet about what it would take to build such a monstrous CPU.

The story is too old to be commented.
