    Intel promises "100's of cores" per processor within 10 years

    Intel today announced a new research program that aims to develop "future platforms that will develop capabilities well beyond those of today's computers." The program, named "tera scale computing research" involves about 80 projects and "hundreds of researchers" around the globe, Intel said. Within 10 years, the company hopes, the initiative will create processors with "10's or even 100's of cores."

    "Once in a generation an opportunity like this comes along to bring dramatically improved computing benefits to millions of people," said Justin Rattner, Intel's chief technology officer. He believes that new and more powerful platforms will enable what he describes as user-aware computing or applications that show human-like characteristics.</div>

    Crazy stuff! Sounds like computers in 10 years will be amazing compared to the ones we have now! Just like the computers we have now are amazing compared to 10 year old computers. :wizard:

    Hahaha... but just think... if you buy a dual-core processor this year, it might be outdated next year if tri-core processors are released! Or what about dual-core dual processors? :eyepop:

    Dual core dual processors are a possible thought, but it seems like every year processors get worse by viruses and crashes because they try to go for power and not protecton!

    Wait 2 years for a processpr.

    Yeah, it's ridiculous. They worry about speed so much that they keep making faster and faster processors with tons of design flaws! I know this is "old news" but not that old, so take a look at this...

    They need to stop and make processors more reliable before they make them faster.

    I wonder when we will have PCs faster than today's supercomputers? :eyepop:
    It's bound to happen someday... even if it is decades away.
