Remote control for virtualized desktops

Updated Chip company AMD has posted a presentation it made at last week's Winhec conference which shows more details of the future of the K7. The full presentation, made by Fred Weber, from AMD's computation division, is available as a Powerpoint file here. We now note that JC has posted a Microsoft Word version on his site, which certainly removes a lot of the Powerpoint slide pain... In the slides, Weber says that the K7 is 500MHz now, and will be 1GHz next year, and will support 1394 and agp4x. Front side bus speeds will eventually go to 400MHz, giving throughputs of 3.2Gb/s. Rambus will allow throughput on memory of 1.6Gb/s. One of the slides shows a diagram of a dual K7 configuration, with throughput speeds. Server level multiprocessor support will allow separate data, address and snoop paths, with point to point access to the data bus in MP configurations, scaling to eight terabytes of data space. ® See also Compaq-AMD plans take Linux shape
