"An experimental Intel chip shows the feasibility of building processors with 1,000 cores, an Intel researcher has asserted. The architecture for the Intel 48-core Single Chip Cloud Computer (SCC) processor is "arbitrarily scalable," said Intel researcher Timothy Mattson, during a talk at the Supercomputer 2010 conference being held this week in New Orleans." "This is an architecture that could, in principle, scale to 1,000 cores," he said. " I can just keep adding, adding, adding cores." | more

there is one thing i don't understand why would hey make this its has 1000 weak pentium cores. k this will be super parallel but would a gpu preform better at super parallel task instead of 1000 cores

Yeah, and after they finish with the core battle, they'll find something else, like levels and/or amounts of cache...it will never end :) which is a good thing. The only bad thig is that Intel's CPUs are very expensive.
