Intel "Intel's experimental 48-core 'single-chip cloud computer' is the latest step in multicore processing. Intel officials say such a chip will greatly improve performance and efficiency in future data centers, and will lead to new applications and interfaces between users and computers. Intel plans to have 100 or more chips in the hands of IT companies and research institutes next year to foster research into new software. Intel, AMD and others are rapidly growing the number of cores on a single silicon chip, with both companies looking to put eight or more cores on a chip in 2010."

He said Flash video, which works fine for nVidia users, and Adobe could make it work fine for everyone using Flash, if they so desired.

If it were about throwing power at it, then it makes no sense, as these 48-core CPUs would be pitiful at that kind of work, even if Flash didn't suck.
