Intel has shown off a new processor, that is called the Knights Corner, and it features a total of 50 cores. According to Intel the Knights Corner is an energy efficient 22-nanometer processor that will have a total of fifty cores on a single chip.
Intel have also said that the chip design isn’t tied to any particular platform, so it could be used with basically any OS like Mac OS X and Windows.
There are no details on when we are likely to see these 50 core processors in our computers, we suspect that could be a few years, but they certainly would have some significant improvements over current processors.
