MIT Spin-out creates 64-core processor based on "mesh" architecture

TileraFrom DailyTech: 

Tilera Corporation, 2004 MIT startup founded on proof-of-concept mesh-based computing today launched the TILE64 processor.  TILE64 is the first in a family of Tile Processor chips based on am architecture that can scale to hundreds and even thousands of cores.

However, don't get too excited while dreaming of 64-core gaming.  Tilera claims the TILE64 has potential uses in video processing and network applications, but the processor is designed more as 64 systems on a single chip, rather than a 64-core general purpose GPU.
