Intel apparently has an update to its 80-core processor that was first presented at the 2006 Fall IDF conference. The processor, which was clocked at 3.1 GHz at IDF, has reached 4 GHz, while retaining the original 20 MB of SRAM. Performance climbs from a claimed 1 TFlops at the IDF to 1.28 TFlops in this new version. The 80-core, 100-million-transistor-die is rated at power consumption of just 98 watts (at 1 TFlops).
