AMD answers to Truland with Pacifica
It seems that the latest round of the server fight hasn´t finished with Intel´s flawless victory, as just in several hours after the announcement of Truland (Xeon MP 8MB L3), AMD held the AMD Reviewer´s Day in Austin, TX, at which it shed light on its Pacifica innovation. Similar to Intel´s Vanderpool it enables several OS to co-exist on single x86-compatible server, though AMD intends to implement Pacifica into workstations and home PCs in the future as well.
According to the press release, Pacifica will be implemented on the hardware level as additional features of CPU and the Direct Connect Architecture. These features will be available in the future AMD64 processors, Opterons in particular, though this technology is also mentioned in early dual-core Athlon 64 demonstrations. Pacifica specs are expected to be published at the company website from April 2005 on.
