Dynamic Cross-Processor Binary Translation 179

GFD writes: "EETimes has a story about software that dynamically translates the binary of a program targeted for one processor (say x86) to another (say MIPS). Like Transmeta they have incorporated optimization routines and claim that they have improved execution times between one RISC architecture and another by 25%. This may break the hammer lock that established architectures have on the market and open the door for a renaissance in computer architecture."
