Intel’s xeon Phi running linux inside

Intel’s xeon phi is what could become a vga card but didn’t. Its pcie card with 56 pentium-class cores and 8 gb of ram.
An interesting thing is that it runs an operating system inside, based on linux kernel.

Long story at semiaccurate

So, anyone wants to try to run a linux kernel on nvidia’s cuda or amd’s gcn ?

    netkas, I heard of some guys that ran Linux kernel on a GPU and the computer worked even if the CPU was ejected from the socket. But I don’t know if it’s a true story.
