"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.
