Tilera said a “major” server maker will announce a low-power server with 512 cores, using eight of its 64-core processors, later in June 2010. The server will draw about 400 watts of power and deliver the same performance as eight dual-socket x86 servers, which could consume up to 2,500 watts, a Tilera representative said in an e-mail.
An official announcement is expected on June 22.
The Tilers server should have about eight times the performance of converntional systems while using six times less power.
