The future of computing is in multi-core processors. The bulk of today’s smartphones come with four or more cores, and even our desktop computers usually at least have dual cores, with quad-cores chips being quite prevalent. But with a rise in core counts also comes a need to ensure that communications between these competing resources moves along at a blazing fast speed. Thankfully, researchers at both NC State University and Intel have come with a way to significantly reduce bottlenecks that clog up the communications link between cores. To do this, the researchers developed what they call a Queue Management Device (QMD). With QMD enabled, core-to-core communication speeds saw a 2x uplift at... Read more...
