"Tilera's approach is straightforward. Its individual cores are full-fledged
general-purpose processors, each capable of running a symmetric
multiprocessing version of Linux. Each core also has an embedded switch for
linking to any of the other cores on the die connected on a mesh network."
"Tilera's approach is unique in part because each of its cores has the
interrupt and cache structures needed to support a full operating system..."
Sounds very interesting to try this chip out in interpreted mode. And
interpretion might prove better suited to cache limited architectures anyway.
