Frakenchips - Xeon and FPGA doubles throughput but not power

hamster_nz (656572) writes "Over at The Register there is talk of Intel's new Xeon/FPGA hybrid chips. Looks to be compelling: There's evidence the company may be right. Earlier this week Microsoft announced a scheme named "Catapult". With this system, the company added FPGAs to over 1,600 servers used by its Bing search engine and, in doing so, had almost doubled throughput while only increasing power consumption by ten per cent.

If you want to get in on the ground floor I guess you could always look at a Kickstarter AVR+FPGA hybrid."
