Intel and Microsoft funds $20 million for 100 core?

Wow!! talk about possibilities of 100 core processors. Apparently Microsoft and Intel got together to reinvent the computing system based around parallel processing. Intel and Microsoft handed the job to two universities to change the course of computer history.
"The grant will fund Universal Parallel Computing Research Centers at UC -Berkeley, which is kicking in another $7M, and the University of Illinois at Champaign / Urbana, which is donating $8M of its own." according to Engadget.
So really?? 100 core processors ?? but in distant future even 100 core processors won't be enough for us. You just watch!!
