Tilera 100-core processor set its sights on Intel and AMD

Intel and AMD might soon have to face a new competitor in the form of Tilera with their newly developed 100-core processor that will attempt to muscle its way into the server market that is currently a monopoly by both Intel and AMD. The Tile-GX series of processors will target servers and appliances that execute Web-related functions including indexing, Web search and video search. Sipping nearly 55 watts of juice at maximum performance, it isn’t exactly a power-hungry chip, as you can see by its 16-core varianbt that draws a mere 5 watts of power. While it might hold the upper hand in performance-per watt compared to x86 chips, it still has some ways to go in establishing their reliability and performance-worthy reputation, but interesting times are definitely ahead.
