Researchers are pursuing various ways of developing chips with supercomputer-level capabilities. For example, using designs with multiple processing cores that operate in parallel can boost performance. Thus, some of the new supercomputer-on-chips don't run as fast as Pentium processors, making them more energy efficient, but yield higher performance. Research projects are also using small chip-feature sizes, enabling them to pack processors with more transistors and circuitry and thereby boost performance.
