1000-core chip

World’s First 1,000-Processor Chip | UC Davis
"microchip containing 1,000 independent programmable processors has been designed by a team at the University of California, Davis, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The energy-efficient “KiloCore” chip has a maximum computation rate of 1.78 trillion instructions per second and contains 621 million transistors.
...KiloCore chip was fabricated by IBM using their 32 nm CMOS technology.
...each processor is independently clocked
...can execute 115 billion instructions per second while dissipating only 0.7 Watts,
...executes instructions more than 100 times more efficiently than a modern laptop processor."
