AMD has developed a prototype media vault device that can be used to store and stream content to TVs and PCs. The, as of yet, unnamed device is aimed directly at the market Apple hopes to broach next year with its iTV. While there are few details currently available about the AMD prototype, Joe Menard, the corporate VP at AMD, speculates that we could begin seeing the AMD media device sometime next year.
The device will be contained in a case tailored to blend with home theater equipment, so potential owners can shed those fears about having an obtuse computer case in the living room. I’m intrigued to see what else this thing will have to offer.
