MIT Takes Multicore in a Different Direction

A team of researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has devised a 64-core processor design that tackles the major impediment to utilizing multicore chips: programming them. The novel device, which is known as Swarm, incorporates extra circuitry that makes it much easier for programmers to parallelize their applications. At least that’s the claim of the research team.
