1,000 Core CPU Achieved: Your Future Desktop Will Be a Supercomputer

Perhaps old news now but the future is looking fast!

Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Lowell laugh in the face of Intel's weedy handful of cores in its new CPU lineup: They've just squeezed over a thousand processor cores onto a single chip.

Hi there

With this sort of hardware availablle wouldn't it be great now if the Bank could STILL get my paycheck into my account in less than 3 days !!!!

Any Bankers on this Forum -- what actually happens to this money that's 3 days in transit -- it is immediately debited out of ACCOUNT A (say agency / your employer or whatever) and takes 3 days before being credited to your private account say ACCOUNT B unless you pay a swindingly extortionate 15 EUR for "Same day Transmission".

Fast computers can do this stuff in MICROSECONDS. !!! A 1000 Core machine would have the transmission completed even before the remote user had lifted his finger off the enter key. Fractions of a NANOSECOND would be in order.

This money must be "Somewhere" and if the Bank is using it to make money WITHOUT MY PERMISSION -- technically it's STEALING as they are "borrowing My money" without my permission then why don't I get Stock exchange Interest rates on it.

Why in the days of 1000 core computers does this stuff STILL take so long -- most Banks spend trillions on decent IT infrastructure too (I'm not saying anoything about their call centers -- that's an unspeakable horror best suited for venting my anger elsewhere).

Cheers

It's actually not your money till you get it.
Maybe it's a European thing, but here in the states, when you have direct deposit, your money is available at midnight on the day you get paid (this is my personal experience).
Government employees that get paid on the 1st and 15th of the month can get their money a few days ahead if the 1st or 15th falls on a weekend or a holiday Monday, they usually get their money on Friday.

The bank just holds on to your money for 3 days and take any interest it accumulates over that 3 days for themselves.

Personally I doubt this. I think computing is moving more in the direction of portable devices i.e. tablets. They're obviously not viable desktop replacements for many people yet, but I would imagine that some time down the road, desktops in general may become obsolete.

I personally think Desktops are being more used by Gamers then general use

Most people in Todays times are Homebody there is more people sitting on there butt daily Tv movies no excersis what so ever and now even more people watch Tv then before

My point is people will continue Desktop use especially when they can watch movies chat and do multiple task a smart phone can only do so much and typing on a lil keypad is stressfull so i doubt people will just leap for a handheld device mostly it is the younger generation but when they slow down ole faithfull <Desktop > will be there ,Let's face it people want the latest even though they have to no use for it ,I sure the fad will die down like all fads

Once I get a computer with all that technology all that would be left to do is turn off some of Microsoft services, configure the ram myself and a couple of registry booster programs. Now this baby will fly. If one can live with those slow 1/4 second boots these things won't have to be done.

Well, we just had a little over 700,000 krónur wired to us from Iceland today, so we'll see how fast it arrives to the USA.

I somehow get the feeling that Intel will not be very fast about adopting the FPGA concept into their processors...at least not all 1000 cores at once (not as profitable as adding 1 or 2 at a time). Maybe this could be an avenue to help AMD recover their market share.
