Hi,

Interesting response as it actually contains an example of how to put this to good use. At the time i wrote this article the sum of all cores in what seemed to be the standard-chip was aroun 19Ghz, i pressume one could get decent desktop performance on that system regardless of the unoptimized nature for this processor.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/236 ... ware-linux here's an old list of multi-threaded applications ...

This processor actually has it's own Linux distro with compilersupport in place for it's design ... they've been running a recompiled but othwerise unmodified snort on this monster with great success.

Did you check http://tilera.com/development_tools ?

Personally i kind of hope these cpu's wil end up on a motherboard from a major vendor and (kind of) become an alternative to x86 based systems. As many malware will not have any chance of passing thru anymore. Unless they'd be recompiled for this platform, haha.

Greetings,

J.

This cpu is now used by Facebook, Google etc. See also http://www.tilera.com/about_tilera/in_the_news

Great stuff for a cross-compiler set-up. Shame it comes bundled with CentOS.
