Intel "In an announcement at the International Supercomputing Conference, Intel provided further details on the many-core chip that it hinted at earlier in the month. The first product based on the new design will be codenamed Knight's Corner, and will debut at 22nm with around 50 x86 cores on the same die. Developer kits, which include a prototype of the design called Knight's Ferry, have been shipping to select partners for a while now, and will ship more broadly in the second half of the year. When Intel moves to 22nm in 2011, Knight's Corner will make its official debut."

Would it have been any better had they named it Knight's Fury? No of course not but it really would have been a better name. It would have made more sense with Knight's Ferry being the developer version.

All I'm not impressed with intel so far their designs are little more than *take small cores and network together* which isn't the best approach for supercomputing IMO cloud computeing perhaps but not supercomputing.
