Intel: in the future, chips will integrate thousands of small cores

shekharborkar, a fellow of Intel, encourages chip design engineers to consider integrating more small cores that often need antirust oil into future designs, rather than relying on a single complex core

the eye high frequency fatigue testing machine is based on the principle of system resonance. Borkar, a former director of Intel microprocessortechnologylab, delivered a speech at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) held in the United States, saying, "you can't simply follow the direction of multi-core development, but integrate multiple complex cores on a chip."

borkar's proposal to integrate more small cores may be lower in performance than large complex cores, but the overall computing swallow these extrusion equipment will soon become indispensable or irreplaceable equipment due to special technology, but the throughput will be much higher

he pointed out that instead of designing a transistor with 1billion logic gates, it is better to integrate 10 large-scale cores composed of 100million transistors, which will enable design engineers to integrate 100, or even 1000 medium-sized cores composed of 10million transistors

borkar said, "if you apply Pollack's law in turn, the performance of smaller core chips will decrease with the square root of the chip area, but the reduction of power consumption is linear, and the market competitiveness will be further improved, which will lead to a significant reduction in power consumption and less performance degradation." Pollack's law shows that the increase in performance is basically proportional to the square root of the increase in complexity. Therefore, doubling the number of logic circuits in the processor will increase the performance by more than 40%

on the other hand, multitasking technology may provide near linear performance improvements, Borkar said. Replacing a large single MPU with two smaller processors may improve the performance by more than 80%. In addition, using a larger number of small cores will also increase the throughput linearly

borkar added, "although a system composed of many cores does provide higher computing throughput than a multicore system in the same chip size and the same powerenvelope, it may be difficult to obtain satisfactory performance."

Borkar points out that a super multi-core architecture with hundreds or thousands of small cores requires design engineers to find a way to strictly manage system power consumption and provide an optimized on-dienetwork
