AMD to open up socket and architecture to third parties

Posted on Friday, June 02 2006 @ 00:42:25 CEST by

AMD said today that it wants to reach 30% of the server market by the end of this year.
He claimed AMD will become the default architecture for blades because of the power consumption. At HP, 75% of blade designs use AMD technology, he said. Torrenza, Trinity, and Raiden are codewords for future tech AMD will release. Torrenza will allow the licensing of hypertransport and other elements.

It will open the socket and the architecture to third parties. Accelerator cards can be linked to AMD architecture tighly coupled to core silicon, he said. A two socket design could use one socket for microprocessing, and the other for security, or using a media accelerator in step with a CPU, or an XML server, or a gaming co-processor. Intel won't open up its architecture, with broad acceptance for different sectors of the market. Sun, HP, and Cray are backing this cunning plan, he said.
