Talk Title: T

he Future of Multi-core: Intel''s Tera-scale Computing Research

Talk
Abstract:
The Intel%AE Tera-scale Computing Research Program is a worl

dwide research
effort to create platforms for the next decade with capab

ilities only dreamed of
today. This requires embracing a shift to massiv

e parallelism through scalable
multi-core architectures platforms and s

oftware which use 10s to 100s of
cores to efficiently process hundreds o

f threads and terabytes of data. This
presentation is about Intel''s res

earch vision and how the 80-core Teraflops
Research Processor advances t

his vision with a tiled design an on-chip
interconnect fabric and inno

vations in energy management.

Speaker Bio:
Jim Held is an Intel

Fellow who leads a virtual team of architects conducting
Tera-Scale Comp

uting Research in Intel''s Corporate Technology Group. Since
joining Int

el in 1990 he has led research and development in a variety of
Intel''s
architecture labs concerned with media and interconnect technology
sys

tems software multi-core processor architecture and virtualization. Before

coming to Intel Jim worked in research and teaching capacities in the

Medical
School and Department of Computer Science at the University of M

innesota
where he earned a Ph.D. (1988) in Computer and Information Scie

nce.
