Default Intel Knights Ferry: 32 Cores, 128 Threads, 1.2GHz

Intel Corp. has disclosed specifications of its test vehicle for MIC (many Intel cores) accelerators aimed at servers. The first one - code-named Knights Ferry - seems to resemble infamous Larrabee graphics processing unit.

The Knights Ferry has 32 x86 cores clocked at 1.2GHz and featuring quad-HyperThreading. The unit, aimed at PCI Express 2.0 slots, has up to 2GB of GDDR5 memory. The chip itself has 8MB of shared L2 cache, which is quite intriguing by itself since highly-parallel applications do not require a large on-chip cache. Intel did not unveil raw computing performance of the Knights Ferry in GigaFLOPS or TeraFLOPS.
