Tilera Corp, founded by CSAIL's Prof. Anant Agarwal, announced that it has begun to ship a 64-core processor. This processor features 64 identical processor cores (tiles). Each tile can independently run a full operating system, or multiple tiles taken together can run a multi-processing operating system like SMP Linux. Anant Agarwal created the first mesh-based multicore architecture as part of the Raw research project.
