Sun to help AMD with Opteron development?

Posted on Sunday, July 24 2005 @ 10:17 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
After canceling Sparc-related projects, Sun says it will help AMD to design the Opteron server processor. AMD hasn't confirmed this yet but in the past the company used quite a number of technologies that were developed by or co-developed with other companies.

In case Sun helps the development of the chip, the final server product may receive some very tangible upgrade over the current generation, as Sun has a lot of technology expertise in the development of server processors. It remains to be seen whether AMD desktop processors also implement Sun’s technologies.
