Adapteva looking to license 64-core mobile chip

Computer chip maker Adapteva has just announced its plans to release its Epiphany IV chip for mobile devices that should allow server-like performance. The 64-core chip is said to provide up to 70 gigaflops of performance while using just 1W of power, the company's CEO, Andreas Olofsson, said. While this power consumption may be high for smartphones, Olofsson assures that the technology can be scaled down as needed.

Adapteva to sell design for 4,000-core chips

Andreas Olofsson, the founder and CEO of a technology start up called Adapteva, hopes to create computer chips with unique circuitry that would be tailor made to solve specific mathematical problems. Olofsson envisions 64 of his company's specialized processors can fit on a typical cellphone chip and, thanks to future production methods, as many as 4,000 tiny cores. This compares to the maximum of 12 cores currently available in chips like AMD's Opteron line.
