Default Intel`s revolutionary chip thanks to Intel India

Intel has developed the world's first programmable processor from a single, 80-core chip, not much larger than the size of a fingernail while using only 62 watts of electricity, less than many single-core processors today, the company said.

This is the result of Intel's "Tera-scale computing" research aimed at delivering teraflops-- or trillions of calculations per second-- performance for future pcs and servers, said Vasantha Erraguntla, who leads the 20-member research team at the IIDC.
*****************************

Indian engineers at Intel's facility in Bangalore played a key role in the development of a fingernail-sized chip that gives supercomputer performance while using only 62 watts of electricity.

The Intel India Development Center (IIDC) played a pivotal role in the development of the chip, contributing about 50 per cent of the work, in terms of logic, circuit and physical design, the company said Thursday.

Hardly, I was a mechanical /manufacturing engineer - only chips that I am familair are those in the canteen or those in my laptop. I am part of the team that makes sure that the IT infrastructure is in control

I hope so....don't we all. Sadly, the stock market guys do not give us the credit for turning around over the past 6 months hance static share prices- at least we have not crashed unlike AMD.

The stock markets dont care how well or what was did the previous qtr..
Sadly, its all about the guidance for the (near) future that matters, especially when it comes to Nasdaq.. If your CEO is upbeat, it helps
