Hardware, Embedded Systems There are increasing rumors that Alpha might be brought back to life. The Inq sets the big 'if' aside and explores the possiblities: "What if there really is a will to get Alpha back into the changed market? What sort of chip would it have to be to have that good chance of success, if any?"

Your comments are interesting, do you have more info about what you are doing?

What's the likelyhood of systems based on your FPGA actually being constructed? And then paired up with another FPGA design, like that chip that renders in 3d using real time ray tracing?

Patents keep something like the from ever seeing the light of day in the US?
