Submission + - AMD asks what you can do with 48 cores (

witherstaff writes: As part of the PR for AMDs up and coming 8 and 12 core processors, AMD is giving away a 48 core machine to the winner of a contest. Contestants need to submit a 500 word essay, or a blog post, or 3 minute youtube video on how they'd use a 48 core machine (4 CPUs) to improve the world. You have until March 24th to get a machine finally able to play crysis. Nice way for AMD to show up Intel's 8 core launch.
