Intel partners with academic researchers to develop morphing CPUs

02/4/2013 | eWeek

Intel is collaborating with a group of universities to develop a class of CPU that can reconfigure to conform to specific workload demands, which researchers say would lead to major increases in performance and energy efficiency. The "MorphCore" technology enables the CPU to switch between two configurations, one designed for dominant single-thread environments and the other optimized for emerging multi-threaded workloads, such as those used in high-performance computing.
