NetLogic Microsystems announced the ".. XLP® II family of multi-core processors .. The XLP II processor family is designed to deliver over 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of network processing performance per device, and over 800Gbps in a clustered, fully-coherent system, which is an order-of-magnitude beyond anything currently available in the market .. a third-generation high-speed Fast Messaging Network® that provides higher-bandwidth, lower-latency communications among the 640 NXCPUs, and to support hundreds of billions of in-flight messages and packet descriptors among all the on-chip elements. In addition to the Fast Messaging Network, the XLP II processors integrate a very advanced on-chip interconnect for the memory sub-system as well as a wide range of high-speed physical-layer and logical-layer networking interfaces .. The first members of the XLP II processor family will be available in the first quarter of 2012, with additional members expected to sample in the first half of 2012".
