back to article Nuke labs show the future of hybrid computing

The Hybrid Multicore Consortium is on a mission that perhaps all of computing - on the desktop and in the data center - will one day embark on: making hybrid computing architectures as easy to program and use as monolithic platforms have been. There is a growing consensus - but by no means a complete one - that the future of …

Multi-core chips

Anyone interested in bleeding edge multi-core chips should check out:

A single chip, containing 40 processors. Each processor is very simple with it's own ROM and RAM. Processors can communicate with their North, South, East and West neighbours.

And fast. Very fast.

Get it right, please

1) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is not a "nuke lab." It does not engage in any classified research nor does it perform any kinds of weapons research. A U.S. Department of Energy laboratory, it conducts unclassified, fundamental research.

2) While, I'm sure he appreciates the promotion, Horst Simon is not the director of Berkeley Lab-unless you know something the rest of us don't know. Paul Alivisatos is the current interim director. Horst is head of one of the labs six divisions: computing sciences. That makes him just one of six assistant lab directors.

I realize it is in the Registers' charter to be snarky, is it also in the charter to be correct? Or should we just look to the Onion for facts?
