Sanders Witness in MS Case
|12/17/03 MS and AMD working to plug security holes - Geek
"AMD continues to gain momentum with their 64-bit processors, and this time the push is coming from Microsoft. Though it is rare for Microsoft to show alliance with a processor other than an Intel, that is just what they have done, and it is big. AMD has implemented code in Athlon 64 and Opteron processors that Microsoft is working with the chip manufacturer to integrate in its next release of Windows XP. The code makes it very difficult to exploit buffer overflows, which are the largest source of security holes"
12/07/03 What would happen if Microsoft bought AMD? - the inquirer
"This would be a major coup for Microsoft for many reasons. It can leverage its hold on the operating systems into CPUs with a fraction of its cash. In only a few years, the software giant could turn AMD assets into a company with parity, if not dominance, over Intel."

They are expected to increase the efficiency of many operations, including engineering and scientific projects, financial services, online transaction processing, data warehousing, digital content creation, video editing, advanced gaming, and computer-aided design"
03/26/03 Microsoft, AMD... A love story? - AMDboard

"NUMA is named for the fact that it can take different amounts of time to fetch information from memory. NUMA groups processors and memory into several separate cells. A processor fetching information from memory within its cell can get the data rapidly. Under standard server architectures, memory and processors are separated from each other and communicate across a heavily trafficked bus"
