Re: [ljc] OT: Parallella: A parallel computer for everyone

From: Ged B.

Anyone who is interested in parallel computing might like to take a look at GrenArrays.  Their evaluation board is more expensive at $450 but it is already available to buy.


From a coding perspective the company has Forth creator Chuck Moore doing some interesting stuff with PolyForth: http://colorforth.com/map.htm

Wish I had the time and money to spare so I could play with it :(

Regards,

OK, this is not specifically java related but I thought given past interest in parallelism and concurrency there might be some interest on the list.

The Parallella project has similar aims to the RaspberryPI, but with a focus on parallel computing - the aim to get a board out there with low power requirements and cheap enough for ordinary developers to experiment with parallel computing. The first boards will have 16 RISC cores (plus a dual core ARM processor) and they are aiming to have 64 core boards available next year if they reach their funding goals. The first 16-core boards should cost $99

An article on The Register gives some more background to the project: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/07/adapteva_epiphany_parallel_computing_kickstarter/print.html

Although the project is called "A Supercomputer For Everyone" it's clearly not a supercomputer by any modern definition.

I've no connection to the project other than that I signed up as a backer on kickstarter.
