Re: Massively parallel FPGA systems

Hi -

I think that Alan Chalmers told me that the firms who build very high-
performance graphics cards are working along this line.


Now that Starbridge has been panned -
Does anybody out there know any massively parallel single-die chips
made of huge numbers of identical little CPUs? In reality, in
vaporware, in patents, or a glimmer in someone's eye... I don't
mean any wimpy 64, I mean thousands. Starting from the fact that
newest Pentium has over 100 million transistors, and a perfectly
good CPU of the 1980s can be made with 40,000.

They are interested at work, so please send any Windows-style
attachments to my work address (ldickson@xxxxxxxxxxx) as this
ancient ISP can't deal with them.
