Saturday, February 25, 2012 silicon squeak smalltalk chip Most SiliconSqueak versions will have more than one processor on the chip. SiliconSqueak is therefore also a parallel processor system, with 2 to 30 processors per chip. You can have many chips connected together for larger numbers of processors, A future design, the SiliconSqueak Wafer, could have around 16.000 processors and their respective memories on a 'chip' the size of a CD. A web server and supercomputer node has 64 processors with a total of 8 GB DRAM running all Squeak based webservers at less than $20 per processor. You can connect as many as you want to build supercomputers and cloud computers.
