Vigile writes “Intel unveiled a completely new processor design today the company is dubbing the ‘Single-chip Cloud Computer’ (but was previously codenamed Bangalore). Justin Rattner, the company’s CTO, discussed the new product at a press event in Santa Clara and revealed some interesting information about the goals and design of the new CPU. While terascale processing has been discussed for some time, this new CPU is the first to integrate full IA x86 cores rather than simple floating point units. The 48 cores are set 2 to a ’tile’ and each tile communicates with others via a 2D mesh network capable of 256 GB/s rather than a large cache structure. “
