Ultimately surely the general purpose model has to be similar to that used by multiple computing nodes hanging off the Internet, but writ small on a single die. For now the likes of Intel and ARM want to keep everything coherent and synchronized but my instinct tells me that cant work as you go to scores of core except in certain very tightly controlled applications.

Plurality's HyperCore developed a many-core design not only for wireless inftastructure. Although not successful yet in producing a maketable product, it proposed a holistic solution for programming model and hardware that programmers liked and silicon could handle. I believe message passing for massively parallel machines is not usefull. Here is another one who tries.

Don't forget Martin Marietta with their Geometric Arithmetic Parallel Processor (GAPP) in 1988. A large circuit board held 32,000 processors as I recall. It supported a Single Instruction Multiple Processor (SIMP) approach. Great for working on images after the initial overhead of clocking in the data from an edge.

It is always about keeping the processors busy with USEFUL work. And that is problem of software, programming, distributed memory and I/O bandwidth.

You missed Siroyan of Reading UK ....which just came back in to my head.

Good list...I think you got most of them. Although the lines get blurry as you go to more application-specific processors.

Way to go Adapteva! I could only remember a half a dozen of them but you hit it out of the park, lol. Still, 200 Gflops at 5W, if to be believed, is alluring.

well , Inmos,Transputer, and XMOS are in effect the same company/person at least pioneer dave may :) he does some nice FPGA files but then he has been at it longest...
