Intel researchers have developed the world's first programmable processor that delivers supercomputer-like performance from a single, 80-core chip not much larger than the size of a finger nail.

Intel already hyped their 80-Core Tera-scale performance project back in September of last year. Intel apparently made progress and has a working 80-Core CPU that only uses 62 watts for Teraflop performance.
Technical details of the Teraflop research chip will be presented at the annual Integrated Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) this week in San Francisco.
More details about Intel's Tera-scale project can be found in this Intel press-release.
