AMD Recently, AMD spun off its manufacturing business in a partnership with the Abu Dhabi government into Global Foundries. Apparently, Intel isn't very happy about this, and has said in correspondence to AMD that the patent cross-license agreement from 2001 has now been broken by AMD.

@lemur2
yes I know about automatic parallelization and setting a compiler to go for multiple targets and letting it write the machine code. I write cross platform apps across multiple architectures, including every one i listed ;)

@bannor99

i never said SPARC being an open standard was a bad thing, its a GREAT thing! SPARC is my favorite platform of them all.

Also I agree with you about MIPS its a great architecture, but since SGI no longer makes desktop and server grade MIPS chips, it has turned into the next "likely to die off" architecture ;)
