NC Researchers Claim Pathway for Processor Scalability
It can be said the scalability is one of biggest challenges that I found in parallel computing. Hence, those types of research are quite interesting.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Apr 16 — Researchers sponsored by Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world’s leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today announced that they have identified a path to overcome challenges for scaling multi-core semiconductors by successfully addressing how to scale memory communications among the cores. The results can lead to continued design of ever-smaller integrated circuits (ICs) into computer hardware without expensive writing of all new software from scratch to accommodate the increased capabilities.
