Yes 5W is amazing. But we will have to wait and see if the performance per Watt is really as stunning as the company suggests. And of course it will only work on 32-bit code. A Tilera exec told be even the Web tier code of top tier data center giants has been re-written for 64-bit processors. Thus he said Tilera may not get volume biz for its 32-bit CPU and is moving quickly to a 64-bit device.

Very impressive indeed. We have to look more closely into the performance claims though.

@Neo1, could you please elaborate on your "non-critical commerce" point? Do you imply that such platforms are not suitable for ciritical commerce apps?

This is quite amazing, think about how many millions of dollars this would save for an enterprise over an year. If they demonstrate the equivalent performance to existing high capacity high demand low latency web servers then they almost have their act together. I suppose all companies with heavy web traffic but non-critical commerce might readily reap benefits from such server deployment.

Quad-core with 5W power dissipation, pretty impressive...especially with my laptop sitting on my legs while I am typing sipping coffee, must be 100W or more causing that almost burning of my jeans ;-)...Kris
