CERN looks to graphics processors, many-core

nk497 (1345219) writes "Sverre Jarp, the CTO of CERN's openlab, thinks the future is many-core — and thinks graphics processors could have a place in physics experiments. Ahead of the LHC experiment kicking off again, he said: "Right now we’re so happy with the multicore strategy that we jump on every incremental improvement because it's so important to us, so we expect to be equally enthused with the Westmere."

He added: "So we expect that we will go down the road of many-core parallelism, so maybe 16 core, 32 core, who knows. Maybe in certain cases, that means a certain risk of less reliability, now this still shouldn't be red pixels in a blue sky, but it might mean the mean-time between failures not being thousands of hours but maybe being a bit shorter.""
