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.

ARM how the future relationship between NV and do not seem big ah, Andrews 4 of the pie that are not assigned to, really sad

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
