Intel’s Single-chip Cluster Computer

I just read a post on Intel’s single-chip cluster computer. This is really a unique thing: multiple cores in a chip, each core has its own private-and-fast memory: cache. Main memory becomes more like the NFS. Programmers write programs for this chip using MPI.

So, this chip is a cluster with super-fast network connection (64GB/s) and very limited memory (because they are implemented as cache).
