TPM 1.2 hardware news: integrated chipset launched for AMD K8 systems

Note that ULi had desktop motherboard vendors lined up at the launch event, but not PC system OEMs for desktops or notebooks. Between this and the fact that the chipset is aimed at AMD (not Intel, which still appears to be the CPU vendor used most of the time by most OEMs) I don’t believe this will have a major impact on the business market. However, it’ll definitely help get the next-gen TPM hardware into the hands of many consumers and small organizations.

That’s just a good thing, no matter whether the TPM technology helps secure PCs via Linux, Windows-based third-party TSS apps or via the Windows Vista Secure Startup feature. Personally I’m just happy to see increased uptake of the TPM hardware by PC technology vendors.
