“Clearspeed is talking to AMD about producing a closely coupled co-processor,” said Jeff Underhill, business development manager for 64-bit embedded applications at AMD.More details over at Electronics News.
Behind the talks are worries that it is not achieving sufficient performance out of its multi-core processors. Stoking those concerns was the stunning performance of the Sony/Toshiba/IBM microprocessor Cell.
