New hybrid storage solutions

A source close to Transmeta said today that IBM's announcement of a multiprocessor chip at the Microprocessor Forum two weeks ago will use technology from the company. As revealed here earlier, Transmeta, which employs operating system wizard Linus Torvalds, is using IBM Microelectronics fabs to create the processors. The so-called gigachip has an "advanced Power PC core". A week after we revealed that IBM Micro was fabbing the Torvald chips, an engineer who still works for the company disclosed details of its previous forays into a multiprocessing, multi-operating system processor. IBM Microelectronics declined to return calls at press time. ® Related stories 615 it still alive in a Transmeta sort of a way Transmeta letter to Linus Transmeta to use IBM fabs Transmeta transmogrified by Linux founder
