Now Sun SPARC supports AMD

Ze plot thickens....

No sooner had we written that Compaq is supporting AMD's K7 while Compaq thinks other IA-64 chips will die next year, than a missive appears on our email reminding us of Sun SPARC. Given this level of support from third party vendors, we at The Register have this feeling that the FTC case against Intel could fall over before it even starts. The release says that the SunPCI card will use a 300MHz AMD card with between 64Mb and 256Mb of PC memory. So Solaris is not dead. What next? Intel offers a daughterboard? ®
