We explicitly state that the Mill does not support inter-chip coherence. The experience with shared memory in such large scale has been disappointing, and the trend is to use packet technology beyond the chip.

Of course, it will be a while before we have to deal with customers at that scale, and we may someday reevaluate the decision. But for now we expect coherence, and sharing, to stop at the pins.
