AMD bags VIA, Zeus as server supporters

Two more companies have signed up to the AMD standards camp, with Zeus, the Internet server GUYS, tipping up to write 64-bit extensions for Opteron, and VIA enlisting for the HyperTransport protocol brigade. OK, so Zeus is a bit niche (granted it’s a successful player in a bloody big segment), but it is all grist to AMD’s 64-bit mill. The more supporters the more credible AMD will be as a server system supplier, as opposed to a chip designer.

All in a day’s work
