Nice, it certainly makes my Q8200 pale in comparison (doesn't even support CPU level OS virtualization).
A lot of software releases are starting to take advantage of multiple CPU cores, Adobe Photoshop just being one notable example.
As far as cloud computing, is anyone else not really convinced of its greatness?

Justin Rattner, the company's CTO, discussed the new product at a press event in Santa Clara and revealed some interesting information about the goals and design of the new CPU."
For the computer folks out there, this thing is amazing. It can behave as 24 dual core processors with different operating frequencies and will use between 25 and 125 watts. It is a small cluster on a single chip. Imagine a unit with 1,000 or more of these.
Low wattage means low heat, high wattage means high heat, they are pretty much synonymous regarding CPUs.

This sounds great, but as a computer guy, my only concern would be heat. Though the wattage is low, i can still imagine it being very hot.
