Just ran across Tilera Corp’s PCIe cards ( TILExpress-64 and TILExpress-20G ) sporting a 64 core processor. Assuming my back-end game simulator can be sliced enough that the processing of one instance can be scaled to hundreds of separate processes, this could be a pretty cost effective way to get that many cores to run it on. Definitive pricing info doesn’t appear to be available yet. The best I could find is a reference to $435 in lots of 10000. Something to keep an eye on.
