Default Processor Whispers: About 16 and 17-core processors

From http://www.h-online.com/newsticker/n...s-1147534.html

Quote:
With the unusual number of 17 cores, IBM’s new BlueGene/Q processor draws attention. AMD’s 16-core processor Interlagos might arrive a bit earlier than expected and the Itanium shows new signs of life.

The “Heptakaideka-Core” processor BlueGene/Q, presented by IBM at the supercomputing conference SC10 in New Orleans, is intended to power the 20 Pflops computer Sequoia, which IBM is supposed to deliver to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in about 2 years time. However, only 16 of its 17 cores are meant for computing, the extra core will handle control and I/O tasks.

Seems someone writing the article is sadly uninformed. Sun T3 has 16 cores.
Of course, there are others with more cores.

Is that possible? The Chinese Tianhe-I is running at "only" 2.5 PFLOPS as of the end of this year. Wow!
