Intel Pushes 50-Core Chip, Mulls Exascale Computing

Computerworld: At the SC11 supercomputing conference, Intel unveiled its Knights Corner processor, which has more than 50 cores on a single chip. It also touted its Xeon E5 server chip, which offers double the performance of its predecessors. Both Knights Corner and Xeon E5 chips will be used to build the Stampede supercomputer, which will debut in 2013 with a peak performance of 10 petaflops.

In his presentation, Intel’s Joe Curley said that the Knights Corner chip is an important milestone on the way to Intel’s goal of producing a supercomputer capable of exascale computing by 2018.
