Wow, interesting. They seems to be way ahead here.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a CPU specialist, just your idiotic moderator..

Tilera's technology eliminates that problem by adding communications switches on each core and laying them out on a grid, checkerboard-style, where packets of data can be routed quickly on one of many parallel routes.
autch, that will cause in higher latency. you will have more latency adressing the RAM and feed Data into the Bus, and get them out. you will need a superb pre-jump-algortithm to solve this issue. this has nothing to do with audiolatency.

Tilera is based in Santa Clara, Calif., but most of its 64 employees work at a research and development site in Westborough. It started in 2004 and has been operating in stealth mode until now.
so, one Core for every employee? hehheh "THIS IS MY CORE.. N O MINE!"

Executives at Tilera say the TILE64s will deliver more than 10 times the performance of current dual-core processors and 40 times the performance of today's digital signal processors.
haha :D ok, then just take a pen, write down how much a dualcore CPU cost from INTEL and one of this 64 core CPU. heh price/power-ratio is not good I think

"We can go to 100 or even 1,000 processor cores on a single chip," said Tilera marketing director Bob Doud.
what a quote. I dont care how many cores they can have on one chip.. if you add more cores you have other problems than speed.

"This could very well become the blueprint for how all microprocessors are built in the future," Agarwal said.
maybe, maybe not. At least it's clever marketing. it will take some years till this technology will be affordable to the consumer-market.

even tough, if they "took a white paper and started from 0", all the software, hardware and other computer-suppliers need to redesign software, hardware, drivers, rewrite billions of lines of code.

I am not an INTEL or AMD fan, but it's the quasi-standart and noone will kill them with just more cores.

I think this article has no perspective, and does not reflect what's really happening in the market.

wouldn't that be a great chance for Apple to switch CPU-platform again - now that they finished the switch to Intellimacs it is slowly getting boring as usual

some more gripes for devs and users What about leopard will only run on those new Mac64s when it gets released in 2009 (think it has to be slightly delayed for the switch) and the first Mac64s will be available from quarter 4 2010

com'on apple - fun must go on .....
