Everybody should know by now that AMD's only hope of competing sucessfully in the processor marketplace is to come up with a new technology that solves the multicore programming problem. They must either forge a new market or fall by the wayside. The multicore crisis is an opportunity of a lifetime for AMD. Unfortunately, AMD has been playing a monkey-see, monkey-do game with Intel, not realizing that they cannot beat it at its own game. They must change the game or perish. A few small multicore startups are hoping to cash in and one in particular, an Israeli company called Plurality, is already way ahead of the pack in engineering real solutions to real problems. Google "plurality multicore" for more info.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
