Rock

This Rock thing from Sun looks interesting. From the blog of Jonathan Schwartz...

Rock is 16 cores - we haven't said how many threads per core. Nor have we said why this chip heralds the golden age of effortless parallel programming, or how it brings fault tolerance to the masses. But stay tuned, I think we're planning on talking up both in the next few weeks.
Yeah, I think there'd be some cool software to write for these.
