Adapteva Builds Manycore Processor That Will Deliver 70 Gigaflops/Watt

Oct 3, 2011 |

In May, chip startup Adapteva debuted Epiphany, a manycore architecture designed to maximize floating point horsepower with the lowest possible energy footprint. The initial silicon was a 16-core processor, implemented on the 65nm process node. This week, the company announced it has taped out a 64-core version of the design on the 28nm process node, delivering 100 gigaflops of performance at under 2 watts of power.
