“The future of HPC (and probably all computing) is both many core and heterogeneous. Trying to get there by adapting today’s commodity processors and GPUs has the benefit of better support for legacy applications, but at some stage this approach will break down. Adapteva’s MIMD architecture should scale better for programs with irregular data structures and program flows, and applying their Epiphany architecture to the hard problems in real time data analytics seems especially intriguing. Watch this space.”
