The new Tile-IQ effort is designed to use the company's aggressively multicore processors to try to unburden x86 servers bogged down by networking chores.
Tilera, a company that supplies many-core processors, says it has raised an additional $45 million in financing.
The company folds a 36-core processor into its lineup and says its updated 64-core chip has twice the speed of the first-generation chip.
The Tile-Gx72 has twice the processing cores as its predecessor, showing that Tilera isn't shying away from its parallel-programming philosophy.
Tilera has introduced a range of processors with up to 100 cores, aiming to take on Intel in servers that handle high-throughput Web apps.
A new family of CPUs from Tilera with 16 to 100 cores per chip will set new complexity records for general-purpose microprocessors. It will also teach a lesson about what "general purpose" means.
An end to the guiding principle of chip development would come with a whimper, not a bang. That would give us time to prepare -- and to make improvements in other areas.
GE's new Platinum LEED-certified data center provides a great example of how highly optimized data center design isn't just something that Google and Facebook do.
Glaskowsky takes stock of GPU designs from AMD and Nvidia, the Trips prototype from UT Austin and the Tile64 chip from Tilera.
CSi. No, it's not a cop show.
