Intel Researchers at Intel are working on ways to mask the intricate functionality of massive multicore chips to make it easier for computer makers and software developers to adapt to them. These multicore chips will also likely contain both x86 processing cores, as well as other types of cores. A 64-core chip, for instance, might contain 42 x86 cores, 18 accelerators and four embedded graphics cores. In addition, Intel has updated its Itanium roadmap.

If so, can I go on the record in saying "Two cores is more than anyone will ever need". I'm more likely to be remembered for saying something wrong, than something right.

In other news, a man got stuck in his toilet when he forgot to put the seat down. He said that he wouldn't have done it, if he had hindsight.

Sorry. In order to be remembered, you have to have not said it, but let a myth get about that you have said it.
