ARM is gaining real good traction. Synopsys Bought ARC but sems still it is not gaining any momentum

Why GPU? Why not something that specially made for parallel processing? GPU seems a little odd in terms of computing but interestingly some people changes its use to become a faster processing tool. Want to know more about the technology behind.

I am intrigued by the thought of GPU based supercomputers, but wonder if the compilers are up to the task? Is this the start of something that is a redo of older technology? I am thinking of the original number crunchers like the Cray and other array processors that were hardware specialized machines with fast execution times built on pipelined architectures. Seems to me that GPUs being specialized cores for graphics with pipelined for performance constructs are not that different from the "old technology" of array processors. I wonder why it took so long, maybe it is related to my original question about compiler technology?

Anybody know what CPU cores other supercomputers are using?

Good thing Intel sold StrongArm for a song. Because early next year we will all have Atom powered Windows Zune Phone.

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.
