32 cores, 512 GB of RAM!

Post by 64_bit_checkers_engine » Thu Aug 12, 2010 00:57

Anyone need a more advanced system, like this 32 core system with up to 512 GB of RAM?

I wonder what Kingsrow International would do on that system?

At Newegg, they don't even sell 8-cores yet, and 6-cores go at $2,500. The largest memory on a server motherboard is 256Gb on Newegg. An 8Gb memory set goes at around $250, so that would total out at $4K for memory alone + $10K for processors for an overall 24-core / 256 Gb system.

For the Intel system, you'd probably be looking at $50K at least...

Another development is many-core processors.
Intel is working on new concept with 32 cores and more (on one chip !).
Derived from the Larrabee project.
So far development boards and a software development system are only available for selective testers.
I don't know if some Universities (Eindhoven?) already have access to these systems.
Anyway i don't have details about the architecture and or specific instruction set, so if it is tailored for Draughts or DB-generation I don't know?
