AMD Unveils Virtualization Spec for Developers

Advanced Micro Devices announced the broad availability of its I/O virtualization technology specification. The specifications will allow software designers to take advantage of the new feature of the forthcoming AMD processors.

AMD is making this technology available through royalty-free licenses that are designed to encourage its widespread adoption by hardware and software developers. By defining a set of technologies that can be directly built into a computer's I/O bridges, AMD's I/O virtualization technology is designed to extend the benefits of CPU-assisted virtualization by addressing the performance bottlenecks and security issues that can be encountered when virtualizing I/O devices in x86-based servers, desktops, and notebook computers.
