Intel Unveils Tera-Scale Computing Research Programme

Worldwide Effort to Develop Platforms with 10’s to 100’s of Compute Cores

Intel today introduced its Tera-Scale Computing Research Programme, a broad effort within Intel’s research community to develop future platforms that will deliver capabilities well beyond those of today’s computers. The Tera-Scale programme will be a global effort, involving hundreds of researchers driving more than 80 related projects at Intel research and development labs throughout the world.

This programme covers a wide breadth of research areas including development of silicon and platform technologies and enabling highly threaded software, with a goal to deliver platforms using processors with 10’s or even 100’s of cores within the following decade.

“Once in a generation an opportunity like this comes along to bring dramatically improved computing benefits to millions of people,” said Justin Rattner, Intel chief technology officer. “The programme’s potential is really for entirely new kinds of applications and, in particular, applications that exhibit human-like characteristics.”

One facet of the overall programme is the significant effort put into analysis of what people will need from their PCs and servers in the following decade. Thus, analysis of future software tasks, or ‘workloads,’ will play a critical, driving role in the direction of the research.
