More Core Wars

Nikkei Journal is reporting that Toshiba president Tadashi Okamura confirms that the CELL chip is nearing completion.

Sony said graphics workstations using the CELL could be available as soon as this winter.

Even if you figure late Winter (march-ish 2005) that’s way sooner than I hoped.

Also Sun’s Jonathan Schwartz shows off a Project Niagara chip: 8 cores * 4 threads per core = a 32-way computer. On a chip.

from the SlashDork dross I found this : Sony Cell CPU to deliver two teraflops in 64-core config from last November.

All this as a follow up on Dual Core Wars and The Other Shoe Droping.

Interesting times….
