Intel’s Knights Corner CPU is the first processor capable of handling 1 tflops performance, and Nvidia introduced several new supercomputers that would be using its Tesla GPUs as part of a hybrid computing approach. Taken together, the announcements seem to be proof that the fastest computers of the future will use a combination of processors aimed at standard operations and will be optimized for single instruction-multiple data (SIMD) calculations.
