Tilera Will Take On Intel`s AMD With 100 Core Processor30th October 2009
The 2 year old Tile-GX series of chips of startup are being targeted at servers and also at the appliances that are executing many of the Web related functions like indexing, Web search and the video search too as said by Anant Agarwal who is the cofounder and chief technology officer of the San Jose, Calif based Tilera. The chips contain the attributes of some general purpose CPU as it can run Linux operating system and also some other applications that are commonly used to serve the Web data.
Agarwal has said that people can run them as an adjunct to some other thing, although the intention is for being able to run it as stand alone. The chips can be used to serve as the co-processors along the x86 chips, or can potentially replace these chips in the appliances and the servers too.
The chip makers are adding cores continuously as one way in order to boost the performance of the application. Most of the x86 server chips that are made today come with either four cores or six, but Intel Inc. is ready to release Nehalem-EX chip, which is an x86 microprocessor that has eight cores. AMD will be shortly following with one 12-core Opteron chip whose code named is Magny Cours. Also the graphics processors from companies such as AMD and Nvidia might include hundreds of cores for running the applications requiring high-performance, although these chips are making their way into the PCs.
