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.
