"Advanced Micro Devices has released a Linux version of a simulator application to help programmers write software for its upcoming 64-bit chips."

"AMD hopes Linux will increase the popularity of its upcoming Sledgehammer chip, prototypes of which are expected late this year, with final versions coming in the first half of 2002. AMD demonstrated the software Wednesday at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo trade show here."

"Sledgehammer is a 64-bit chip, which means it can accommodate vastly larger amounts of memory. It will compete with established server chips from Sun Microsystems, Compaq Computer, Hewlett-Packard and IBM. And chipmaking heavyweight Intel is aggressively helping Linux programmers embrace its 64-bit chip, the much-delayed Itanium."
