    $20 144 core CPU now in full production - Green Array Chips

    Will this will be useful to routers and cell phones or just industrial control systems?

    It does not say 144 "cores". It says 144 "computers". Big difference! And to me, even more remarkable.

    No it doesn't. Follow the links.

    A core is just a CPU core. A core, like the CPU itself, is just a dumb device that knows nothing until told what to do by other connected devices - such as the BIOS.

    A computer is a fully functional device with a memory controller, memory, bus, and whatever else is needed to process information integrated into the device. These multi-"computer" devices can even be pre-loaded with software programs to run.

    As the link says, it has 144 "fully fledged computers" in just one chip.

    Well it's priced right for a hacker to push the tech around and see what it can do.
