100 Core Processor by 2010!

Tilera a M.I.T. spinoff that spawned a startup in 2007, will bring to market the first 100 core processor early next year. I was just getting used to quad-cores. :-) I don't think my Mac will be sporting one anytime soon, but there are some really cool applications for this chip. Can you imagine encoding dozens of 1080p H.264 HD streams simultaneously. Somebody show be an affordable dedicated Handbrake box!  Watch out Intel...
