TILE-Gx is a multicore processor family by Tilera. It consists of a mesh network[8] of up to 100 cores.[9] It is to be produced by TSMC[citation needed] with 40 nm. It was announced on February 19, 2013 that Tilera would produce a 72-core Tile-Gx CPU capable of processing high-bandwidth networks.[10]
