PCWorld's Mark Hachman reports that Intel has approached AMD about their Mantle technology. Did they approach AMD about x86-64, DDR, and integrated memory controllers. IDK.
"I know that Intel have approached us for access to the Mantle interfaces, et cetera," Huddy said. " And right now, we've said, give us a month or two, this is a closed beta, and we'll go into the 1.0 [public release] phase sometime this year, which is less than five months if you count forward from June. They have asked for access, and we will give it to them when we open this up, and we'll give it to anyone who wants to participate in this."
