Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede is a professor at Glasgow university, and he claims that he and his research team has created a 1000core processor the same size of a regular desktop processor. It’s based on the FPGA technology wich stands for field programmable gate array. In some early test’s it has proven to be a lot more efficient than todays consumer processor’s. Intel is also planing to do the same, although they only made a 48core processor thry say that it is theoretically possible to scale up to 1000core’s.
