Followup on the 80 core CPU Intel was boasting about. It’s here. It’s not commercial yet, but it’s real!

There’s still some doubt. But if parallel machines weren’t enough, quantum computers are just around the corner no matter what. Project V can handle anything that comes along. I couldn’t care less what the platform is. What other technology can claim the same?

Here’s an article on making best use of system resources, especially the cache, in multi-core systems. This is all too important if you’re doing low level programming. Unfortunately, I doubt most people will understand how to properly take advantage of this. Most languages don’t let you deal with the cache anyhow.
