World's Highest CoreMark Score for CPU Performance Achieved by Tilera's TILE-Gx Processor

The TILE-Gx72 System on a Chip Processor With Seventy-Two 64-Bit Cores Is Production Qualified and Shipping in Volume Today

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/10/13 -- Tilera Corporation, the leader in high-performance, power-efficient computing, today announced two key milestones for its TILE-Gx™ family of 64-bit manycore general purpose processors. As a member of the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC), Tilera received the EEMBC's highest recorded CoreMark score for a single processor: its flagship TILE-Gx72 processor was certified with a single-socket CoreMark® score of 277,579. In addition, Tilera processors hold 3 out of the top 4 scores for CoreMarks/MHz.

The CoreMark benchmarks help designers select the right embedded processors for their systems. Every processor submitted for EEMBC benchmarking is tested for parameters representing different workloads and capabilities in communications, networking, automotive/industrial, and embedded Java. EEMBC members include leading semiconductor, intellectual property, and compiler vendors.

"Tilera's processors have consistently been among the top performers in our CoreMark benchmark scores, and this latest certified result for their TILE-Gx72 is quite impressive," said Markus Levy, president at EEMBC. "Furthermore, we are pleased to have Tilera join EEMBC as a Networking Subcommittee member and look forward to their participation in this important working group."

Tilera's expanding portfolio of products includes:

  • TILE-Gx Processor Family - Leading the industry in scalability with devices ranging from 9, 16, 36 up to 72-cores, the TILE-Gx manycore processors are the most power efficient and highest-performance CPUs on the market
  • TILEncore-Gx™ Intelligent Application Adapters - A family of server adapters that incorporates Tilera's TILE-Gx manycore processors with integrated 10Gb to 80Gbps of Ethernet I/O - all in a low-power PCIe form factor
  • Multicore Development Environment™ (MDE) - Tilera's best-in-class development toolkit and runtime software that enables customers to easily port, optimize and customize applications in an industry standard Linux/C based programming environment

"Competitive market pressures drive us to rapid and predictable silicon execution to meet the aggressive development schedules of OEM developers," said Devesh Garg, CEO at Tilera. "Tilera has brought the TILE-Gx72 through our rigorous qualification process and launched it to market in record time -- a testament to the benefits of the tile-based architecture and our world-class engineering and operations team. Our market traction and design wins continue to multiply at a healthy rate as our customers see the value in our Linux/C-based solutions based on products they can monetize today."

"Mikrotik continues to expand our Cloud Core router family, powered by Tilera's remarkable TILE-Gx manycore processors," said John Tully, CEO at Mikrotik. "The performance, power efficiency and scalability of Tilera's processors is unparalleled, enabling us to leverage the deep investment in our carrier-grade RouterOS software across our Cloud Core line. We are extremely pleased with Tilera's rapid pace of innovation; we can count on them to help us stay in front of the market curve," Tully added.
