This Open Source 25-Core Processor Chip Can Be Scaled Up to 200,000-Core Computer

This Open Source 25-Core Processor Chip Can Be Scaled Up to 200,000-Core Computer

Aug 26, 2016
Researchers have designed a new computer chip that promises to boost the performance of computers and data centers while processing applications in parallel. Princeton University researchers have developed a 25-core open source processor, dubbed Piton named after the metal spikes used by rock climbers, which has been designed to be flexible, highly scalable, fast and energy-efficient to satisfy the demands of massive-scale data centers. Every computer has a processor, but it's the core, a processing unit, which defines its actual efficiency and performance. A Processor can have a single core or multiple cores, which receive instructions, then performs calculations on it based on those instructions, and gives the results back. For example, the four independent processing units i.e. Cores of a quad-core processor can run multiple instructions at the same time, increasing the overall performance for applications compatible with parallel processing.

N3XT — Advanced CHIP that Could Make Your Computer 1000 Times Faster

Dec 16, 2015
Researchers have come up with an all new way to revolutionize the standard computer chip that comes inbuilt in all our electronics. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon , Stanford , and t he University of California , Berkeley among others, have invented a new material that could replace the 'silicon' in conventional chips – built in all electronic devices – making the device's processing  speed 1,000 times faster . This means that the new chip made with nano-material could solve complex problems in a fraction of the time our computers take. The brand new chip, dubbed Nano-Engineered Computing Systems Technology (N3XT) , takes the landscape from a resource-heavy single-storey layout to an efficient ' Skyscraper ' approach, claims a Rebooting Computing special issue of the IEEE Computer journal. Silicon Chip – A Resource-Heavy Single-Storey Layout The standard silicon chips currently used in all electronic devices have one major issue: The
5 Key Questions CISOs Must Ask Themselves About Their Cybersecurity Strategy

5 Key Questions CISOs Must Ask Themselves About Their Cybersecurity Strategy

Jul 08, 2024Cybersecurity / Enterprise Security
Events like the recent massive CDK ransomware attack – which shuttered car dealerships across the U.S. in late June 2024 – barely raise public eyebrows anymore.  Yet businesses, and the people that lead them, are justifiably jittery. Every CISO knows that cybersecurity is an increasingly hot topic for executives and board members alike. And when the inevitable CISO/Board briefing rolls around, everyone wants answers: Are we safe from attacks? Are we making progress? Could happen to us? These are all fair concerns.  The question is, how do we best answer them? A company board deserves clear, concise information tied to business goals , not technical details about fixes or attack methods. A communication gap between the CISO and the board can lead to misunderstandings, increased risk, and potentially devastating cyberattacks. And this is why one of the overriding challenges for CISOs today remains: How to pr

Announcing the results of its experiment, Google says Quantum Computer is More than 100 Million times faster than a regular PC. Two years ago, Google and NASA ( National Aeronautics and Space Administration ) bought a D-Wave 2X quantum computer , which they have been experimenting at the U.S. space agency's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California for the past two years. The goal is to create a better way to solve highly complex problems in seconds rather than years. Also Read:  Fastest Operating System for Quantum Computing Developed By Researchers Now, a Google's Quantum AI team appears to have announced the results of its latest test on D-Wave 2X quantum computer, demonstrating that quantum annealing can outperform simulated annealing by over 108 times – that is 100,000,000 times faster . What is  Quantum Computers? Quantum computers can theoretically be so much faster because they take advantage of quantum mechanics. While traditiona

Fastest Operating System for Quantum Computing Developed By Researchers

May 02, 2015
So far, we just have heard about Quantum computing that could make even complex calculations trivial, but there are no practical Quantum computers exist. However, the dream of Quantum computers could become a reality in coming future. Cambridge Quantum Computing Limited (CQCL) has build a new Fastest Operating System aimed at running the futuristic superfast quantum computers . The new operating system, dubbed  t|kit> , has been featured by CQCL's very own proprietary custom designed high-speed super mechanism, allowing the company to accurately impersonate the working of a quantum processor. " CQCL is at the forefront of developing an operating system that will allow users to harness the joint power of classical super computers alongside quantum computers, " the company said in a press release. " The development of t|ket> is a major milestone ." Quantum Computers — Soon be Reali ty Researchers have been working on significant activities to develop qu
China Builds World's Fastest Supercomputer

China Builds World's Fastest Supercomputer

Jun 08, 2013
China has developed a new supercomputer known as Tianhe-2  which is twice as fast as US and Japanese systems has been measured at speeds of 30.65 petaflops or 74 percent faster than the current holder of the world's-fastest-supercomputer title. Titan, the U.S. Department of Energy's fastest supercomputer, has been clocked in at just 17.6 petaflops per second. Earlier reports said China is aiming for no lesser than a 100 Petaflops machine by 2015. China's National University of Defense Technology last week revealed about a massive machine in Changsha, that's expected to come out next weekend during the International Supercomputing Conference. Tianhe-2 is built with Intel Ivy Bridge and Xeon Phi processors. The powerful system was assembled by Chinese company Inspur using tens of thousands of the latest multicore chips produced by Intel, with an addition of some home-made technology. In total, the supercomputer is said to contain over 3 million processor cor
