Two and a half years after the Titan core was “debuted“, AppliedMicro (nee AMCC) has just announced the APM 83290, built around two Titan cores, is sampling now. In addition to the cores, AMCC seems to have put a lot of effort into the on-chip accelerators, which are “designed to offload entire protocol level tasks,” and are “fully software programmable.”

One more major feature is the process technology: 83290 is available in 90nm bulk CMOS, which is supposed to make it less expensive than equivalent-speed competitors (i.e. Freescale). Perhaps not coincidenally, AppliedMicro recently announced a collaboration with TSMC…
