I know that new processors come and go. There is a classic hype cycle every time a new idea is announced https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hype_cycle. Many do not even make it to the plateau of productivity because mainstream processors catch up with them on Feature X and well, you might as well get a conventional server with a mainstream processor then.
The interesting thing here: _he Prodigy platform has 64 cores with fully coherent memory, barrier, lock and standard synchronization, including transactional memory. Single-threaded performance will be higher than a conventional core, the CEO said. Each chip will have two 400 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Would anyone care to comment if this architecture would be a good fit for Julia?
Sadly I missed the recent MIT talk on the future of Julia parallelism. Is ti online somewhere?
