On-chip firewall guards PCs

Monday, 18 October 2004, 2:11 PM EST

Chip firm Nvidia will this week announce a motherboard chipset with dedicated hardware to support a client-side firewall. The nForce4 chipset offloads from the processor the task of inspecting data traffic, so it can secure a PC without slowing performance.

The Nvidia nForce4 chipset is shipping now to motherboard makers and system builders, and is expected to appear in PCs before the end of the year. However, the system only supports 64bit AMD chips, while most companies still only buy desktops running Intel processors.
