I have been following all kinds of hardware threads on this board for a while now.
All FPGA/ASIC threads where very interesting. I learned that cost per kW/h differs from 0.04$ to 0.25€ per users I have seen so far.
As I am more on the upper end of that scale, power efficient solutions are most welcome.
I would like to know what you think about this processorhttp://tilera.com/products/processors/TILE64
or ready as cardhttp://tilera.com/products/platforms/TILEncore_cards
It is said to consume about 20W. I fear that, as no price tags are provided and the I/O ports seem to target premium application scenarios, it will be priced too high.
Still, is anybody familiar with this specifice processor or give a performance comparison?
It seems there are no dev boards available (at least not publicly).
At motherboard with a few of these cards would be fun, since they are programmable with standard C++.
