AMD Torrenza - first applications evolve

Posted on Tuesday, May 01 2007 @ 00:30:37 CEST by

TG Daily reports that the first applications for AMD's Torrenza initiative have appeared:
It has been about eleven months since AMD has revealed its Torrenza initiative, an effort to open up its hardware and encourage third parties to build secondary components, such as accelerators, around the firm’s processors. We haven’t heard much in the past months, but AMD says that Torrenza isn’t just a vision anymore.

Instead, we were told by company representatives, numerous “market ready” designs have become available. The fact that you may not have heard of them is that they are very young products and mostly target a high-end market with little mass market appeal. For example, these applications include applications for Wall Street traders (from Activ Financial) or the XTX accelerator card from Tarari, which specifically offloads antivirus search and management from the processor.
AMD is also working on several products, but isn't willing to reveal any details yet.
