Submission + - A 1 watt, 64-core chip for tablets and smartphones (techworld.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Smartphones and tablets are demanding more computing power, and chip company Adapteva hopes to bring server-type performance to the devices with a new chip. The Epiphany IV chip packs 64 cores, and can provide 70 gigaflops of performance while consuming one watt of power, according to Adapteva CEO. A watt may be high for smartphones, but performance and power consumed by the cores can be scaled down to accelerate tasks such as hand-gesture recognition and face recognition."
