Adapteva, manufacturer of highly integrated CPU solutions, has launched a project on Kickstarter to its know-how in a small development board bring that will provide the equivalent of up to 45 GHz.
Parallella is a stripped down version of the Epiphany multicore chips expected. The Epiphany IV architecture provides processors with 64 cores and a power equivalent of approximately 51 GHz. These chips are installed, among other things by the U.S. Millitär on their boards. In contrast to these high performance chips to Parallella consume a maximum of 5 watts under full load.
Parallella The Board is expected to be a dual-core ARM A9 CPU and the “Epiphany multicore Accelerator” with 16 or 64 cores on a RISC architecture. Further specification includes 1 GB of RAM, a micro SD card, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, an HDMI port and two expansion ports.
