AMD adds to AMD64 Longevity program
I noticed over at The Inquirer
that AMD has announced
the addition of two new processors to its AMD64 Longevity program for embedded systems. The AMD64 Longevity program guarantees processor availability for five years, and currently covers several single- and dual-core Opteron processors. According to AMD, the new additions to the AMD64 Longevity program are based on the company's mobile processors. Few other details are given, but it seems likely that the chips would be derived from AMD's low-power Turion 64 MT processors. A Turion-equipped Mini ITX platform would be pretty sweet.
