What does our developer community think about this computer http://www.parallella.org/board/?

They propose it can be used in BOINC http://www.parallella.org/ideas/.

If it can be possibly used in PrimeGrid and it proves itself worthwhile, I would be more than happy to buy it.

Cheers

As with any other platform, we would rely on volunteers to develop the software before we could consider running it. Of course, nobody needs official approval to run software on alternate platforms, as was the case with android and CWSieve.

If someone writes a boinc client for that device, the most likely app to be ameniable to be ported to this device would be one of the two sieves, PPS or TRP.

Still would be awesome to see the performance of a 5 watt, 64-core CPU

If they can match performance per watt of the GPGPU's, then i would like a small set of parallella's.

But it could just be your next larrabee, great potential and promise but nothing in reality. (or the Knights Corner for that fact)

Hopefully the many-integrated-cores (as a co-processor) will gain some traction in the future where performance per watt is increased, just like the amount of simultaneous threads.
Until then OpenCL and Cuda is the best bet (imo)

That's irrelevant, actually.

Since no app exists for it, you would have to write an app for it yourself. By definition, if you're running your own app, you must be using app_info. If you're running app_info, the server doesn't care whether it recognizes the machine or not because the user is taking responsibility for providing hardware and software that will work.

Did you realize you were replying to a three year old thread? :)

Yes, I did realize. So with an app_info it should work? Or a whole new boinc app for it? Just to know.

A whole new app.

How are your C++ and parallel processing skills?

And before anyone goes "Oh! I can do that!", consider that without the equivalent of AVX, or for that matter true floating point, it's not going to be suitable for Genefer or LLR. The only app that will likely work on it is the sieves. And if you have the skillset to get a sieve running on an ARM processor, how about taking a crack at our broken Android Sieve app? That's got a huge built in audience already and would be a much higher priority than a three year old novelty processor that never caught on.
