Sun's Niagra processor will ship in 2006 with 8 64-bit UltraSPARC cores.
Each core handles 4 threads at a time with simultaneous multithreading
(SMT). So you have 32 "simultaneous" threads.
I imagine that it won't be too long before we have hundreds of threads
running in a chip. I wonder how Erlang, as a concurrency oriented
language, can take advantage of this future.
