HP is attempting to meet the the demands of big data by offering a server that combines advanced multicore chips from Intel and Nvidia with large storage capabilities.
Pushing several steps farther in the multicore direction, Intel on demonstrated a fully programmable 48-core processor it thinks will pave the way for massive data computers powerful enough to do more of what humans can.
ARM is preparing new enterprise partnerships as its Cortex-A9 processor goes fast and multicore
ARM announced the development of dual-core, quad-core and eight-core Cortex-A9 processor designs explicitly aimed at markets currently served by Intel's x86 chips and IBM's PowerPC.
At IDF, the company announced a suite of tools to help developers engage in parallel coding, for a future where every machine is multicore
Chip giant Intel unveils a suite of new tools that aims to help developers engage in parallel coding, for a future where every machine is multicore.

Multicore processors have been around since 2005, when Intel shipped its first dual-core processor and the advantages of many cores have been widely touted, but a working model for costing software to work with them is still on its way.
Stanford University, in conjunction with Sun, AMD, NVIDIA, IBM, Intel, and HP, is working to create a new computing model that fully exploits modern, multicore processing. As a feature in Ars Technica points out, parallel computing has always posed significant challenges to programmers.
In what has become a not-so-secret secret, Microsoft and Intel are set to unveil on March 18 their joint funding of more parallel-processing research work, according to various industry reports.
Windows Server 2008 is easier to install and manage than previous versions, and has many new and improved features that should encourage organisations to upgrade.
Intel director James Reinders looks at the power, memory, and instruction-level parallelism walls that are forcing the move to multicore processors, and explains why sometimes it makes sense to underclock, not overclock...

To simplify software's access to multicore parallelism, AMD proposes new x86 spec. Will Intel accept?
For more than a decade, where ever Intel went with the x86 instruction set, AMD followed. And, ever so briefly, when AMD broke ranks with its 64-bit extensions to that instruction set, Intel followed it (there's a fairly broad cross-licensing agreement between the two when it comes to the x86 architecture).
Researchers work to mask intricate functionality of up-to-80-core chips, so hardware and software makers can more easily adapt to them.
At the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in San Francisco, Jerry Bautista, Intel's director of technology management, demonstrates how, in the future, Intel will power virtual environments using its multicore chiptechnology.
While Intel struggles to get their 80-core processor to work, a company you've probably never heard of has been quietly shipping systems with hundreds of cores. Last year at JavaOne I attended a presentation by Cliff Click of Azul Systems on scaling up an application that used to take weeks to run so that it could finish in minutes. After the Intel announcement, I tracked down Cliff to get his thoughts on multicore hardware and software.
Company is set to release tools for writing parallel threads, which help apps take advantage of multicore chips.
Insight64's Nathan Brookwood gives me the lowdown and what transpired at the Intel Developer Forum this week. In our podcast, he explains the new Core Microarchitecture, which will underpin Intel's multicore, energy efficient chip families, and how Intel's processor roadmap stacks up against what AMD's.
Intel has training and certification programs for developers who want to know how to work effectively with multicore.
