In this month's IEEE Spectrum magazine there is an interesting study on
multi core CPUs and 'intensive computing' done at Sandia labs Seems like
with the current data bus architecture, 8 core is the max for data
access intensive applications like data mining. So I am thinking that if
you need to move lots of data for your applications, the CPU is not the
limiter, it is how the system moves data into and out of the CPU(s) that
needs to be considered.
