MIT Puts 36-Core Internet on a Chip | EE Times

Today many different interconnection topologies are used for multicore chips. For as few as eight cores direct bus connections can be made — cores taking turns using the same bus. MIT’s 36-core processors, on the other hand, are connected by an on-chip mesh network reminiscent of Intel’s 2007 Teraflop Research Chip — code-named Polaris — […]

In light of Intel’s positioning of the P3xxx family, a number of you asked for us to […]

AnandTech | Intel SSD DC P3700 Review: The PCIe SSD Transition Begins with NVMe

We don’t see infrequent blips of CPU architecture releases from Intel, we get a regular, 2-year tick-tock cadence. It’s time for Intel’s NSG to be given the resources necessary to do the same. I long for the day when we don’t just see these SSD releases limited to the enterprise and corporate client segments, but […]
