Apparently Tilera is developing processors for cloud computing that have 100 to 200 cores. Wow. Just Wow.
I don't know the technical aspects of these processors, or how many they could potentially put on a single blade in the UCS chassis - but the scale that this creates is pretty awesome.
Tilera Gets $45 Million from Cisco, Samsung, Others
Tilera, which is developing chips with as many as 100 to 200 cores, gets $45 million in a fourth round of funding, with Cisco and Samsung among the investors.
Tilera, among the first in a growing number of processor makers looking to manufacture non-x86 chips for servers in cloud computing and other high-performance environments, is getting more support from a number of capital venture companies and tech vendors like Cisco Systems and Samsung.
