Currently Hewlett Packard, Activ Financial Systems and RapidMind are either offer or readying co-processor solutions under the Torrenza initiative. Besides, AMD itself also offers its so-called AMD Stream Processor product, which is based on ATI Radeon X1900 graphics processing unit, but is meant for high-performance computing, but not gaming. Unfortunately for AMD, the adoption of both Stream Processor and Torrenza seems to be slow.More info over here.
Activ Financial Systems has been selling its ActivFeed MPU (market data processing unit), a hardware accelerated solution for low-latency exchange feed processing, for many months and says its customers are positive about the FPGA-based (field programmable graphics array) hardware co-processor for AMD64 second-generation servers.
Select next-generation HP ProLiant Servers with the quad-core AMD Opteron processor will support HTX cards, enabling end users to deploy customized acceleration solutions within their current or future data center infrastructure, HP recently announced.
