A 1.000 core processor created by researchers

Team of researchers at the University of Glasgow managed to create a processor with 1.000 core , yes that's lot of cores , thanx to their new concept and with that number of cores this processor can be twenty times faster than "modern computers" reported engadget:

We've already seen field programmable gate arrays (or FPGAs) used to create energy efficient supercomputers, but a team of researchers at the University of Glasgow led by Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede now say that they have "effectively" created a 1,000 core processor based on the technology. To do that, the researchers divvied up the millions of transistors in the FPGA into 1,000 mini-circuits that are each able to process their own instructions -- which, while still a proof of concept, has already proven to be about twenty times faster than "modern computers" in some early tests.
