AMD Torrenza a huge wave

I discussed the implication of openning ccHT before at here and here. Now, read this news about Tarai's ASIC content processors. This is huge, folks. ASICs have much better performance, and should cost a lot lower than FPGA.

Tarai's content processors are much more "general purpose": XML, Perl-Compatible RegEx, ZIP/GZIP, UTF8/UTF16, RSA, DES/3DES, Media encoding/decoding...

Imagine PERL boosted by this chip...This is a revolution!

Link - Conroe benchmarks from our friends over at Toms.

Torrenza is going to be the nail in the coffin for Intel on the Server Front and if it's implemented correct, Intel will only have Mobile platforms left when Torrenza tears up Conroe.
