On the edge of a new age in processing.

Intel's experimental processor introduced, the future holds great hope for those of us in the video editing business. http://www.nytimes.com/pages/technology/index.html

That makes upcoming quadcore cpu's look like chips from an atari machine.

I don't expect to see this on the 'street' for another five years though.

Keep in mind that these are not full processors as we know them... They do
"basic" floating point calculations only. Still awesome stuff though!

I assume you were talking about:

A new experimental chip from Intel could house as many as 80 separate processing engines, or cores.
Unfortunately can't directly link to that article on that site (subscribers and all)

Information came out last year, a promising step.

The Playstation 3 already does around 2teraflop, the revolutionary cell has a significant part in it.

The XBOX 360 does around 2Teraflop, thanks largely to the ATI GPU that is somewhat like direct X ten. AMD has bought them out, they have been rumoured to be incorporating GPU technology in the processor, or co-processor.

I expect that future versions of these chips will do more than 1 teraflop within years.

Companies like clearspeed have been doing these parallel schemes for years, at much lower power requirements. There are others. One acquaintance I knew, has the lowest power per MHz parallel.

Intel is playing catch up, and maybe it will turn out to be the leader again.
