Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Platform 2000 held earlier this week in San Jose had some more information on Transmeta's Crusoe, together with some first information on which manufacturers will implement the processor, according to this report on Akihabara Pricewatch. The same report, which is in Japanese, also contains pictures of some boards which were displayed at the microprocessor conference. Our Lernout & Hauspie software has given us a reasonable idea of what Pricewatch reports. According to that report, most of the presentation was fundamentally similar to the Crusue launch content last week. But, at the Q&A, there were a couple of specific questions about support in Crusoe for MMX and Intel's Screaming Sindie extensions. If L&H's software is working properly, it appears that while Crusoe currently supports MMX extensions, so far there is no support for Screaming Sindie or 3DNow! However, there are plans to implement that in future. There were prototypes of Transmeta terminals, and displays of Mobile Linux, however, photographs of which are on the Pricewatch page. As far as we understand, the reporter from Pricewatch is saying that the Transmeta unit was running very coolly, and using Windows 98. And, at the same time, Quanta is one OEM involved in producing the mobos. Quanta is a Taiwanese manufacturer which supplies notebooks to a number of major PC vendors. ®
