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.
The problem is that more cores need more power, and more power means more heat generated.
The MIT offshoot, which designs chips that scale from 16 to 100 distinct compute cores, is taking on Intel in processors for cloud-computing tasks such as analysis of big data
Intel engineer Timothy Mattson explains why he thinks his company has a processor architecture that could scale to 1,000 cores
The key innovation in Intel's experimental 48-core chip isn't in the silicon at all. It's what the company's doing with it
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.
The Wind River Hypervisor for embedded systems promises to let multiple operating systems run side by side on a single or multicore chip
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.
Intel's new Larrabee architecture is a graphic illustration of many-core design
Intel's "Larrabee" family of multi-core chips, originally aimed at the personal-computer graphics market, may now see action in "an increasingly broad spectrum of the computing world, from Windows and Macintosh desktop personal computers to handhelds and even supercomputers," reports the New York Times.

How are the roadmaps of the leading server processor vendors shaping up for 2009 and beyond? We pore over Intel, AMD, IBM and Sun's latest plans.
Intel CTO Justin Rattner and his merry band of researchers played show and tell with projects from the chipmaker's lab focused on visual computing and how to leverage multiple cores.Rattner outlined Intel's research projects Wednesday--roughly 70 of them--and noted that these experiments will turn into products in the next 5 years or so.
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.
Having multiple cores on one processor has its benefits, but simpler software licensing is not one of them
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.
The average datacentre lasts between 15 and 20 years, so when the current generation of datacentres near the end of their working life, will their replacements be at all familiar?
