Your future smartphone and tablet will have 48 cores: Intel

kurzweil

Adding cores to processors is a power-efficient way of boosting chip performance, instead of increasing CPU clock speed, which led to excessive heat dissipation and power consumption.
Intel CTO Justin Rattner said functions such as speech recognition and augmented reality will push the need for this kind of computational power.
“If we’re going to have this technology in five to 10 years, [the smartphone] won’t have just one camera,” said Enric Herrero, a research scientist at Intel Labs in Barcelona. “It would have two to three cameras that are always on. It could build a three-dimensional map of what it’s looking at and do object recognition.”
