rick & jim, whole im late finding this news, i thought it would be clear to you both this is just a half assed response thats not even a "Cache Coherent Network" to ARM's existing initial 1 Terabit/s rated Cache Coherent Network Interconnect http://www.arm.com/products/system-ip/interconnect/corelink-ccn-504-cache-coherent-network.php http://www.arm.com/products/system-ip/interconnect/corelink-ccn-504-cache-coherent-network.php "CoreLink CCN-504 is the first in a family of products. It enables a fully-coherent, high-performance many-core solution that supports up to 16 cores on the same silicon die. The CoreLink CCN-504 enables system coherency in heterogeneous multicore and multi-cluster CPU/GPU systems"

Unfortunately, this is another area where different companies will promote different solutions instead of coming together to develop a consistent standard, which common in the server world. While Intel’s announcement may not fool people (as you put it), if companies have to make a choice, they are much more likely to choose the one touted by the industry leader, even if it does not represent an industry standard. Others will just sit on the sidelines until an industry standard is developed.

Would people be fooled into this though? Times have changed and these tactics are really outdated...

Intel is pre-announcing its plans in hopes of distracting people from having any interest in AMD's Freedom Fabric or whatever other alternatives the ARM server SOC folks such as Calxeda are developing.

Other than stating that Intel is doing something that can scale from interconnecting micro-servers to exascale and that it will appear before the end of the decade, this does not have any details. Intel being intentionally vague or is this just vapour-ware?
