Internet Security Threat Report 2014

AMD has scored a sweet deal as icing on the cake of today's K7 unveiling - the company is to supply the CPU for HP's entry to the Windows-Based Terminal market. According to an HP spokeswoman the CPU is an AMD 486, and as the company says it plans "to establish a premier position around the world in thin-client computing," the volumes for AMD should be significant. A certain piquancy is also added because HP recently announced it had taken out an ARM licence, and would use the chip as a strategic platform for a range of devices, including handhelds and peripherals. Using ARM or StrongARM in its terminals is probably still a long-term goal for HP, but it's likely to have chosen AMD for the first wave of devices in order to get to market quickly. The HP terminals will be out in Europe in early 1999, and according to product manager Borel Setten will add another option to HP's line of corporate clients. At time of writing it wasn't clear when the US rollout would be. ® Click for more stories
