Informationweek about Niagara 2
One of the Infoweek blogs published a really nice article about Sun’s Niagara 2 Processor Is Multicore Computing On Steroids:
Still, this Niagara 2 device is a killer piece of silicon, delivering double the throughput of its predecessor.
BTW: I don´t share Alexander Wolfes opinion, that “throughput computing” isn´t a good catch phrase. Throughput computing is nothing less than the shift from “compute one task as fast as hel”l to “compute as much work as possible in a given timeframe”. And this concept is well known in the world of those people who buy such servers.
