Sun is releasing the specifications of the new UltraSPARC T2 processor.
"When Sun announced the release of the eight-core UltraSPARC T2 chip
in August 2007, company executives said it would move to bring the
specification to the open-source community through Sun's OpenSPARC
initiative. The goal of releasing Niagara 2 into the open-source community
through the General Public License is to create a larger community around
the chip and increase the number of operating systems and applications that
can use the processor, said Shrenik Mehta, senior director for Fronted
Technologies and the OpenSPARC Program at Sun.
