Open source 25-core processor can be stringed into a 200,000-core computer

Researchers want to give a 25-core open-source processor called Piton some serious bite. The developers of the chip at Princeton University have in mind a 200,000-core computer crammed with 8,000 64-bit Piton chips. It won’t happen anytime soon, but that’s one possible usage scenario for Piton. The chip is designed to be flexible and quickly …
