SRC Computers announced yesterday that they’ll be supporting AMD’s Torrenza initiative with their processor accelerator solutions. Recall that Torrenza is AMD’s platform for letting 3rd party vendors integrate tightly with it’s processors using HyperTransport.
The move brings SRC’s reconfigurable processors, SNAP interconnect, and what the company identifies as its “high level programming environment” to AMD.
“The addition of SRC to the Torrenza initiative is welcomed. Developers will now be able to use ANSI standard languages to develop applications that use both SRC’s reconfigurable hardware and the AMD Opteron(TM) microprocessor. We see this combination as very powerful in many markets including financial services, oil and gas exploration, and life sciences,” says Randy Allen, Vice President Server and Workstation Division of AMD.
