Developed Super Fast 1000 Core Chip

Developed Super Fast 1000 Core Chip - WORLD computer technology continues to grow rapidly. If your computer still has a 16-core processor, now a research could develop up to 1,000 cores on a single chip.

With a 1,000-core processors that will accelerate the workings of the computer until a few years into the future. Processors express it would be a new era in the computer world.

Scientists from the University of Glasgow and colleagues from the University of Massachusetts Lowell has succeeded in making computer chips that run 20 times faster than existing in the current desktop computer.

Research team leader Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede from the University of Glasgow and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, explain the super computer program is very concerned about the environment.

Super computer is concerned about the environment. Although high-speed, but its much smaller. The scientists use a chip called a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) - a microchip containing millions of transistors. There is a small on-off button which is the foundation of every electronic circuit.

FPGA can be configured to a specific circuit by the user. These transistors on a chip memnungkinkan divide into small groups and each perform a different task.

By making more than 1000 mini-circuits in the FPGA chip, the researchers effectively change the chip to be 1000 'core' where each processor works on its own instructions.

This chip is capable of processing about five gigabytes of data per second in testing. So that runs 20 times faster than modern computer.

This research led by Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede from the University of Glasgow and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. ''Although processing power is very big but very small energy consumption and running so quickly,''he explained.

Most computers currently consists of more than one core (core) processing. They perform different processes but simultaneously. Traditional multi-core processors must share access to a single source that slows the course of system memory.

FPGA technology''are now used in plasma televisions, LCD and computer network routers. But the very limited use for the computer desktop (computer desk),''said Vanderbauwhede.

According to some some microchips that combine traditional CPUs and FPGA chip that was announced by the developer, including Intel and ARM.

He believes these types of processors will soon go public and help accelerate the course of a desktop computer in the long term. Vanderbauwhede also hope this research will be presented at the International Symposium on Applied Computing reconfigurable in March 2011
