Single Chip Cloud Computer

We are sorry, This PDF is available in download format only

Intel Labs has created an experimental “Single-chip Cloud Computer,” (SCC) a research microprocessor containing the most Intel Architecture cores ever integrated on a silicon CPU chip – 48 cores. It incorporates technologies intended to scale multi-core processors to 100 cores and beyond, such as an on-chip network, advanced power management technologies and support for “message-passing.”

Architecturally, the chip resembles a cloud of computers integrated into silicon. The novel many-core architecture includes innovations for scalability in terms of energy efficiency including improved core-core communication and techniques that enable software to dynamically configure voltage and frequency to attain power consumptions from 125W to as low as 25W. This represents the latest achievement from Intel’s Terascale Computing Research Program. The research was coled by Intel Labs Bangalore, India, Intel Labs Baraunschweig,Germany and Intel Labs researchers in the United States.
