Intel 80 core processor

Intel has come up with a 80 core processor and it is still on the research level.The best case in here is the Chip is running with about 175W and has a mechanism to sleep the the cores which doesn't need at that moment.You can find more details about this on http://www.intel.com/pressroom/kits/Teraflops/index.htm.


This board houses Intel’s 80-Core Teraflops Research Chip. The board contains working silicon and it is the world’s first programmable chip to achieve teraflops performance while consuming very little power.

Intel processors with two and four cores are here now. In the coming years, the number of cores on a microprocessor will continue to grow, launching an era of vastly more powerful computers. In order to provide the best energy efficiency and enable tomorrow’s emerging applications, the computing industry is shifting to improving performance by increasing the number of cores on future processors. With this in mind, Intel put in place its Tera-scale Computing Research Program, which is investigating the technologies necessary for Intel to build processors with tens or even hundreds of cores in the next 5-10 years, as well as the platforms and software around those processors.. There are more than 100 projects in this program being carried out by Intel researchers in labs around the world.

One of these projects is Intel’s Teraflops Research Chip. This chip is Intel’s first silicon tera-scale research prototype. It is the first programmable chip to deliver more than one trillion mathematical calculations per second (1 Teraflops) of performance while consuming very little power. This research project focuses on exploring new, energy-efficient designs for future multi-core chips, as well as approaches to interconnect and core-to-core communications. The research chip implements 80 simple cores, each containing two programmable floating point engines – the most ever to be integrated on a single chip. Floating point engines are used for accurate calculations, such as for graphics as well as financial and scientific modeling. In terms of circuit design, they are more complex than integer engines, which just process instructions.

Google API v3 with PHP using Blogger service

It was really hard for me to understand how the Google APIs are working at the first point and took few days for me to figure out. But after a successful working prototype it seems very easy. And also when I am searching for a simple example I was unable to find a good one that I can understand.

So let me list down step by step what I have done with URLs and as simple as I can.

Create a Google applocation - https://code.google.com/apis/consoleSwitch on the "Blogger API v3"Get the latest APIs client library for PHPlocation - https://code.google.com/p/google-api-php-client/downloads/listUpload the files to your host location on on localhostExtract the files to folder  named "GoogleClientApi"Create your php file outside of the folder Copy paste following code into the file and do the changes as needed  By changing the scope and the service object you can access all the services that is given by Google APIs through the PHP API library set given.

How to get indexed by Google & Yahoo

I have seen a lot of ads and services online that provide the facility to get higher page ranks on search engines. But when I asked about those services on Google their respond was not much positive because they said it can decrease you page rank (because those services cannot be trusted always). It is happening because the page rank is depending on page visitors (as Google say). So the better way is to let the Google to index your site by sending them the address of your website. http://www.google.com/webmasters/ : here you can improve the traffic with the webmaster tools and you can send your website contents also. It is a legal, simple and direct hit.
You can send your web site address (even the blog) to Yahoo: https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com also. It helps them to index your pages on their search engines.


It is better to come up with the content and services which are really useful for the visitors and the traffic will be increased regularly. I have gone through a lot of expe…

How to Install ColdFusion 8 on Linux?

It was real pain for me to install ColdFusion on my Linux box with Apache. Anyway we have installed it and I thought to share it because this may help you also to install ColdFusion on a Linux box.
First of all open a shell and then continue on this.

Grant Execute permission to the Coldfusion‐8‐lin.bin binary file
chmod +x Coldfusion‐8‐lin.bin

Execute Coldfusion‐8‐lin.bin
./Coldfusion‐8‐lin.bin

Enter the Locale
1 (English)

Hit Enter 28 times to continue the agreement

Enter "Y" to accept the agreement

Enter the version to install
3 (Developer Edition)

Enter the next task to perform
1 (Server Configuration)

Enter whether you have an existing server configuration
2 (No existing server configuration)

Enter the next task to perform
5 (continue installation)

Enter the installation path
Hit enter to accept the default path

Hit Enter 30 times to continue the agreement

Enter "Y" to accept the agreement

Enter the serial number
Hit Enter for no serial number
