Default No Palladium in Opteron

'The Inquirer has also learned of this story where AMD says the Opteron will support Palladium. This has bad PR written all over it. Remember when Intel wanted to enable chip tracking? Yeah, that one lasted long.
The new microprocessor, which will run both existing 32-bit applications and specially recompiled 64-bit programs, will support "Palladium", a set of security and privacy features Microsoft is building into its products. Both AMD and Microsoft are members of the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance (TCPA), a cabal of 170 product makers developing a uniform approach to security and copyright protection. AMD has been working on the "trusted client" approach with Wave Systems Corp for two years.

Update: AMD has contacted The Inquirer and indeed Opteron will not support Palladium. Apparently that was some creative writing on the part of the outfit that posted the story.'

Holy Sh..! The Inquirer actually bothered to retract a wrong story. I don't trust the Inquirer and this story just makes me wonder how much AMD cares to bother to get them to retract the story.

I've spoken to many of the writers of the Inquirer, and I can say that most of them are pure idiots.

Well from what I've noticed AMD really hates pissing people off, except when its out of their control (late product stuff)

And I've noticed this topic definately pisses people off.

I never trust the inquirer. Everytime I see something of their's I think "National Inquirer" and place about the same value on their articles. FULL OF CRAP.

I agree. I read them occasionally when I'm bored, but don't place much faith in anything I read.
