'Universal Emulator' Could Aid Xbox 2?

Officials from Silicon Valley start-up Transitive Corp. have revealed details of the company's new 'hardware visualization' software, which they claim allows software developed for one platform to run on any other, with relatively little degradation in performance, something the company claims is a step up from a normal 'emulator', although the general concept is obviously similar. The company claims that QuickTransit will allow applications to run on any platform without any modifications to the underlying program. Interestingly, one of the possible examples given by the company is the running of Intel/NVIDIA-based Xbox software on the next-generation PowerPC/ATi Xbox 2 console, although there's no indication of whether this is actually a reality or not. The company has also used games in various software demonstrations, with the Linux version of Quake III: Arena running on an Apple PowerBook. However, the company’s initial clients will be in the server and mainframe markets, with six unnamed PC manufacturers already having purchased licenses to use the software. The software launched on Monday with versions for Itanium, Opteron, x86 and Power/PowerPC chips.
