    Wouldn't this be redundant with Quad-Core and others to come?
    This is an honest question, i really want your input. I'm not a computer wizz. With multi-processors wouldn't this be irrelevant, having the right software to do what this chip doeso_O?

    Hmm sounds interesting. what they should do is make routers than include that.
    nat router+that chip is gotta be really safe. if the chip works that is.
    the less security software needed on the pc the better.

    Hello,
    Not a bad idea. Just like firewall-equipped infiniband network cards. But they take away all the fun. And leave the user useless. Should work well with corporations.

    Doesn't sound bad to me but I kinda wonder...

    Does it update firmware or something in some way?

    If not, how long will it take for the first virus to be written that will get around the chip?

    Just the first thoughts I have. I don't know much - well ok probably anything - about the technology here but I'm pretty skeptical so far.
