Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

If you're a top chip architect or designer, AMD needs you, a bit like Lord Kitchener needed troops for the ill-fated first World War of this current century. The AMD site is looking for people to join the team to work on the next generation system which Jerry Sanders III used to call the K9 (canine, geddit? Ed) five years back. The job spec goes quite a lot like this: " AMD's x86 64-bit architecture and system bus of the future, Lightning Data Transport™ are planned to be implemented in AMD's eighth-generation microprocessor, code-named SledgeHammer. AMD plans to extend the x86 instruction set to include a 64-bit mode, delivering a simple yet powerful solution that enables all of the performance benefits associated with 64-bit computing, while maintaining compatability (sic) and a leading-edge performance roadmap for the existing installed base of x86 32-bit software applications and operating systems. No other 64-bit solution has full native x86 32- and 64-bit compatibility." We'd normally charge AMD a hefty fee for advertising job opportunities, but we'll let it off this time. And this time only, unless it fails to find top people of course. Intel had severe problems finding enough architects to help it out with its little Merced problem. Here is the URL. ®
