It is obvious that Core2Core communication become the bottleneck with the 2D connection for so many cores. Let's go 3D.

3D scaling could be important if there is high interdependence between the operations of each CPU, but I maintain that we may have to build new computing models to really take advantage of systems built around CPUs like this. Separate memory for each processor is a good start, since it relieves the bottleneck of access to shared memory. Data centers are a good application for this, because they often work on large numbers of independent transactions. By the way, we may also have to look at the nomenclature. I just realized that this isn't really a Central Processing Unit (CPU). It's more like a Central Processing Pool (CPP?). For that matter, is the 'processor' the chip or each of the sections of it? The same word is used for both in this article. Larry M.
