Single-chip Cloud Computer
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (March 2011)|
The Single-chip Cloud Computer (SCC) was an experimental microprocessor designed by Intel Corporation announced in 2009. Intel funded the project to promote many-core processor and parallel programming research. Also, Intel designed the integrated circuit (chip) to investigate integrating cloud computing into a chip.
Each SCC chip contained 48 P54C Pentium cores connected with a 4×6 2D-mesh. Four DDR3 memory controllers were on each chip, connected to the 2D-mesh as well. The cores are divided into 24 tiles. Each tile had 2 cores and a message passing buffer (MPB) shared by the two cores.
