US Military contractor Raytheon, have designed a CPU architecture that can be morphed into different forms to suit the different demands of the applications.

Called, Monarch (Morphable Networked Micro-Architecture) the computer has been developed to tackle the large data volume of sensor systems as well as their signal and data processing throughput requirements.

It has apparently outperformed the Intel quad-core Xeon chip by a factor of 10. When stuck in an array containing six microprocessors Monarch has managed 64 gigaflops with more than 60 gigabytes per second of memory bandwidth and more than 43 gigabytes per second of off-chip data bandwidth.
