WASHINGTONScientists at the University of Glasgow have developed an ultra-fast computer chip,which is 20 times faster than todays computers.
Regular PCs have two,four or sometimes 16 cores but the new Central Processing Unit (CPU) developed by the researchers effectively had 1,000 cores on a single chip.
Wim Vanderbauwhede saif the new super computer is also greener than regular desktops,reports the Daily Mail.
Using a chip called Field Programmmable Gate Array (FPGA), the team divided the transistors within the chip into small groups and asked each to perform a different task.
By creating more than 1,000 imni circuits within the FPGA chip,the reaserchers effectively  turned the chip into a 1,000-core processor-each core working on its own inspections.
“FPGAs are not used within standard computers because they are fairly difficult to programme but their  processing power is huge while their energy consumption is very small because they are so much quicker-so they are also a grenner option,” Vanderbauwhede said.
“I belive these kinds of processors will only become more common and help to speed up computers even further over the next few years,” he added. Vanderbauwhede will present his research at the International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable Computing.
