It looks to me that it is more like a GPU (multi-core) based design. What are their key advantages here?

anyone?

It is great that some companies in technology are still able to attract the investment from leading technolgy companies. No wonder there is still a lot to come in future.

It's logically multicore with a time sliced architecture that let's each slice handle an operation or set of operations in a defined time window. This deterministic latency lends itself very well to software programable I/O operations and real time applications such as control and robotics, rather than GPU. It also allows the chip to scale with multiple processor cores each handling multiple slices, all allocated by the compiler. It's done well with the real time Ethernet AVB protocol that is gathering traction in automotive with the determinism, and they have combined their xCore with the Silicon Labs ARM-based controller but this deal is about the definition and implementation of the next generation devices.

@Nick - do you know how can it support flash whioperating at those speeds?
