Top three mobile application threats

Over at JC's hardware pages there's a heap of speculation about how the MD K7 will work. That follows pictures of the K7 posted on a Japanese site yesterday (see AMD K7 ripped asunder on Japanese site). There's enough information to conclude that the processor is designed in such a way that two CPUs can easily be connected together in an SMP configuration giving a fast throughput rate. And Marco Remondino, chief editor and webmaster of Italian hardware site, Hardware Zone, said: "I just wanted to let you know what's the use of the upper connectors on the K7 CPU: it's used to connect two CPUs so to allow point-to-point data transmission in a dual CPU configuration, from one CPU to the other. That's faster than on P6 systems, where the data is transferred through a slower bus." Pretty soon now, we hear, K7s will start tipping up at third parties so expect more information to leak. ®
