Transmeta info

Door , 0 reacties, bron: AGNhardware •

Ace's Hardware heeft een artikel met info over de zwaar geheimzinnige Transmeta processor die volgens sommige buitenaardse technologie gebruikt (jammie). Hier wat stuff:

Rumors suggest Transmeta is developing a microprocessor designed to execute foreign instruction sets, and their patent lends some credence to these rumors. A product capable of running all of the software available on all other platforms (or at least the biggest ones) could become the defacto standard on which other semiconductor companies base their designs. Imagine Intel developing x86 microprocessors by using technology from Transmeta. Another possibility is that Transmeta will market such a product directly to the end user, selling OEMs and VARs a chip that can run anything and everything. There are problems with this theory, however. By all accounts, the successful emulation of another instruction set is more time consuming than the direct execution of that instruction set in hardware. For example, Digital's FX!32 is slower than genuine x86 hardware.

One of the best ways to try to get some insight into what Transmeta is up to is to look at the people who work for Transmeta. Though I won't mention any names, at least one Transmeta employee worked on Stanford's SimOS project (http://simos.stanford.edu/), a program capable of emulating other architectures (SimOS currently emulates MIPS and Alpha hardware). Additional Stanford projects which may relate to work being done at Transmeta include the FLASH Project (http://www-flash.stanford.edu/), the building of a large-scale shared-memory multiprocessor, and a UNIX-compatible operating system that survives hardware and software faults, called Hive.
