Star Semiconductor and the Taiwan-based IAdea Corporation have announced the world’s first BitTorrent accelerator chips, the STR9810/20. The two new processors share an ARM-based design that works sort of like a TCP/IP offload engine, but it’s specifically intended for accelerating BitTorrent traffic on embedded devices like media centers, NAS products, and mobile hardware.

Kickass!

Don’t forget about Asus’s kickass 160GB HD wireless router with BT client inbuilt :wink:
Of course, don’t do anything naughty with it, cos I doubt it has Peer-guardian support, assuming the peer-guardian crew isn’t on the RIAA payroll anyway :stuck_out_tongue:
