Intel said it will incorporate hardware-accelerated XML into future systems. Intel picked up the technology via its acquisition of Conformative, Austin, Texas. Intel believes the bulk of the Internet and many applications will be XML-based in the future.
“The theory is that XML traffic is rising rapidly and will dominate overall Web traffic over the next several years,” said Endpoint Technologies Associates analyst Roger Kay. “XML has a kind of predictable structure and if you could do something special to that process, you could have a better Web experience.”
