Intel unveils 80 Core Chip

Intel is scheduled to unveil details of a research project into large scale multi-core processors, an 80-core chip that will be used to guide further developments.

The CPU is a research project designed to develop an understanding of how a processor with large numbers of cores will handle calculations and, in particular, communications between the various cores.

The chip also contains an interface capability that would make it possible for Intel to package a memory chip stacked directly on top of the microprocessor in the future. Such a design would make it possible to move data back and forth between memory and processor many times faster than today's chips.
