"The hard-charging chip maker is close to a deal with AMD... and
the 1GHz speed barrier. Should Intel be worried?"
"Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Transmeta are about to
announce a relationship. The chip manufacturers are expected to
soon announce the scope of cooperation, according to AMD chairman
and chief executive Jerry Sanders. ...sources say the two companies
might swap patents in a manner similar to AMD's past
patent-swapping deal with Motorola."
"Transmeta is particularly interested in AMD's Lightning
Data Transfer technology, sources said. LDT is a high-speed
processor interconnect technology created to be AMD's new bus
technology. It provides up to a 20-fold increase in bandwidth and
will be used for input/output, coprocessing and multi-processing
functions. LDT will see use later this year in forthcoming
chip sets for Athlon processors."
