IBM "If it's the number of cores that gets computers excited these days, then IBM may have its hands on the ultimate processor. Together with Rapport, a Silicon Valley startup, the company previewed the Kilocore1025, a processor with a total of 1025 cores that promises not only to boost processing speed but also to operate at low power levels."

Speaking of which, today I saw the movie Tron, playing live on an Atari 800XL. The movie was converted to 16 shades of greyscale, but it played from Mr Atari's hacked harddisk, on a computer with a 1.67 MHz processor.

Now imagine a Beowulf cluster of those...aka 1024 8-bit computers ;)

You can see digitized Matrix on this page at the bottom:

Took him 3 hours to decode the video (without the sound!) on an Atari emulator running at 5000%.
