The Snapdragon 400 has dual Krait CPUs going as high as 1.7GHz and quad ARM Cortex A-7 CPUs topping out at 1.4GHz with an Adreno 305 GPU.the processors feature the Asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing
(aSMP), which helps keep it power efficient under full load.
The new OP module features an internal incremental solver that delivers exceptional speed using symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) on dual core and quad core PCs running Windows 7.
The additional product development capabilities include embedded Linux on multi-core ARM Cortex-A9, symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) and asymmetric multiprocessing
(AMP) using Linux and RTOS.
The processor, built using TSMC's 40-nanometer process, is the world's first chip designed on the Variable Symmetric Multiprocessing
(vSMP) architecture, which optimizes CPU multi-threading and multi-tasking for maximum performance and power efficiency with four ARM Cortex-A9 processing cores and a fifth core.
For mobile devices, MIPS Technologies offers a range of processor cores and architectures, from small footprint cores with advanced levels of code compression, to some of the industry's highest performing multiprocessing
Other topics are fault-tolerant flow control in on-chip networks, physical-aware link allocation and route assignment for chip multiprocessing
, and network-on-chip architectures for neural networks.
Even if you only consider symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) chips, the number of multicore vendors is large and includes AMD, ARM, Freescale Semiconductor, IBM, Intel, and MIPS Technologies, among others.
Available with up to 4GB of DDR2-400 SDRAM, the PENTXM2 can be paired with the support of VITA 31.1 backplane networking, while the PENTXM2's VITA 38 intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) enables ease of scaling into a multiprocessing
"Moreover, QNX's distributed processing eliminates the high CPU utilization associated with traditional forms of interprocessor communication, enabling developers to realize the exceptional multiprocessing
capabilities of RapidIO technology."
"It is perfect for those designers requiring efficient and scalable multiprocessing
, but who do not want to be locked in to proprietary systems."
QNX also supports symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) on Broadcom's SiByte BCM1250 dual-processor system.
Since SMP is IBM's new symmetrical multiprocessing
architecture, and IBM is an InfiniBand champi on, this is scarcely surprising.
