We want to make many-core easy! And we’re not stopping just because many people say that that isn’t possible….
Everything in our industry is driven by “Moore’s law”, or, in other words, the desire to get more performance out of that piece of silicon. We see many-core as a main road for “Moore”, and when we say many-core, we mean hundreds of cores, and in a variety of cores and functions. Formally said: scalable, flexible, heterogeneous many-core systems. We love all the hardware design challenges that come with connecting a variety of cores and accelerators, and keeping it scalable from 2 to 2048 and beyond.
The negative association between ‘many-core’ and ‘programming headache’ is the second and most important part of our ‘why’. If it’s easy to use, heterogeneous many-cores are simply the coolest way to get more performance, so why not make that possible?
We want to be the ones that make complex many-core systems easy to use for the rest of the world. We are excited to do what others consider impossible in this day and age: many-core made easy.
