    P.A. Semi announced a multil core 64 Bit SoC today. Interesting thing it seems, but how vapour is it?

    Read the press release here: http://www.pasemi.com/news/releases/2005_oct_24_1.html

    No idea about that of course, but if you google for names of some of PA Semi team members you can find a few very interresting articles. So if it's a vapour, it's a very well founded one, i'd say. :-) Anyway, more players we get, the game gets more interresting. We'll see.

    We like this, any new Power architecture processor on the market is a good thing all around.

    However we are looking at this time next year for SAMPLES. I wouldn't get too excited, as users, just yet.

    From the press release.. "It will sample in the third calendar quarter of 2006, with single-core and quad-core versions due in early and late 2007, respectively, and an eight-core version planned for 2008."
