Adapteva creates 1024 core processor

Competition in the HPC processor market is building with the news that Adapteva, a specialist in the design of energy efficient accelerator chips and compute modules, has created a 1024 core processor – thanks, in part, due to a grant from the US, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This new processor is aimed at emerging workloads such as deep learning, self-driving cars, autonomous drones, which ‘require an order of magnitude boost in processing efficiency to unlock their true potentials’ according to Andreas Olofsson, CEO, and Founder at Adapteva. The chip ‘Epiphany-V’ contains an array of 1024 64-bit RISC processors, 64MB of on-chip SRAM, three 136-bit wide mesh Networks-On-Chip, and 1024 programmable IO pins. The chip has taped out and is being manufactured by TSMC. Olofsson explained that the primary…
