Forget dual-core; try 80 cores !!!

Not content with releasing the exquisitely thermo-efficient core 2 Duo and torturing us mortal users with tantalizing glimpses of upcoming quad-core chips, Intel has come out and announced that they have successfully created a prototype 80-core chip, which can process 1 trillion floating-point operations per second.

Aack! I wonder how much power that sucker draws...
