If you've been hankering to get your hands on that stamp-sized 48-core processor Intel introduced last year, you'd better brush off your doctorate -- the chipmaker says it will send samples of the CPU to researchers and academic institutions by the end of Q2. Clocked between 1.66GHz and 1.83GHz like Intel's Atom netbook chips, the 48 cores won't boost your framerates in Crysis -- rather, they're intended for linear algebra, fluid dynamics and server work -- but what we wouldn't give to try. Oh well -- suppose we'll just have to make do with puny 8- and 12-core chips for now.
