MojoKid writes "A new company, Adapteva, has announced its own entry into the field of many core, mesh-connected processors. The company's Epiphany architecture is an array of simple, RISC-based microprocessors. Each processor contains ALU and FPU units, 32K of SRAM cache and each processor node incorporates a router. Nodes communicate with each other via mesh networking. The implementation is capable of scaling up to a 64x64 array (4,096 processors). Adapteva claims that Epiphany is capable of delivering unprecedented performance per watt, with a 16-core array offering up to 19Gflops at 270mW on a 28nm process."
