Intel's Tera-Scale Developement In Advance

The development of personal computer is fast moving. From the simple calculation purpose in 50 years ago to entertaining PC nowadays, PC has been introduced to many fields of application. In the future, we can see PC may contribute more help in clinical research and bioinformatics technology. In IDF Spring 2005, Intel has announced Platform 2015 to suit for the needs. On the behave of Intel, Dr. Yen-Kuang Chen has told much about on the Intel Tera-Scale development, pointing out that the implement of multi-core architecture is only one of the main parts, but not in total.

Tera-Scale includes 3 Tera abilities, Tera Operation Per Secord, Terabit data transfer rate in memory and I/O. These areas are impossible being implemented by SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processor) only, but also in platform and program support.

Last month, Intel has just showed research prototype silicon containing 80 simple cores and operating at 3.1 GHz. The silicon is capable up to 1 Teraflop calculation while its size is only 300mm?. Perhaps itís one of the most important breakthroughs on reaching Tera-Scale. On a mean while, Intel also introduced the Tick-Tock models which stated that Intel would deliver new architecture and manufacturing process every 2 years. Following the Core architecture, 45nm Nehalem and 32nm Gesher architecture are upcoming in 2008 and 2010 respectively. And Core architecture will stepped into 45nm process in 2007, a step forward to Tera-Scale.

Also, Intel has introduced an innovation on improving bandwidth between memory and processor. The example is a 20 megabyte SRAM memory chip that is stacked on and bonded to the processor die showed on IDF Fall 2006. Stacking the die makes possible thousands of interconnects and provides more than a terabyte-per-second of bandwidth between memory and the cores.

Last, Intel is supporting universities to include parallel programming in their curriculum. Itís a goal that there will be more than 400 universities are involved, so that developers could fully utilize Intel multi-threading technology. In conclude, together with the development on these 3 areas, Tera-Scale is soon to be possible into our life.
