A Closer Look at Parallella (Multicore, documented, FOSS friendly!)
Authored by: Gringo_ on Thursday, May 23 2013 @ 08:34 AM EDT

This is way cool. First I heard of it. Wish I had the time to play with one of these. I'd like to imagine a future where we routinely have thousands of cores and employ neural networks as assistants in all kinds of tasks.

Doesn't mention anything about CUDA support. Since you can program it with C, then all one would need is a CUDA library I suppose.

I'm quite interested in plugging several of those toghether in a pipline :)
(maybe the GPIO is fast enough...)

In fact, I was just recently trying to design something like that with cheap ARM
CPUs, needless to say that it got too expensive. Now I can simply buy it!

The DesignSpark article is from January 2013. There's more recent information at parallella.org, including photos of the actual boards (the original prototypes were Zedboards). As of 11 May 2013, Parallella has Ubuntu running on the Xilinx Zynq FPGA's ARM Cortex-A9 CPUs and expect to ship first boards to Kickstarter backers in the first half of June.

Along with being a supercomputer, Parallella is likely to be the cheapest Xilinx Zynq FPGA board available -- much cheaper than the Zedboard. That said, the US$99 price was for Kickstarter backers -- pricing for the rest of us is TBD.
