Intel’s 80-core prototype

Intel multicore processorJust a heads up on this (quantum?) leap in “multicore-ness”. Here’s the juice:

Intel will demonstrate an experimental computer chip with 80 separate processing engines, or cores, that company executives say provides a model for commercial chips that will be used widely in standard desktop, laptop and server computers within five years.

If you’re into video and video production, this will come as great news indeed. With high definition content becoming the standard rather than the exception, processing power has to increase AT LEAST four times in order to match the processing time for SD video.
