Security built into the chip......will that herald the demise of traditional security products?[/quote:1otj0e6s]

I doubt it! I imagine this will find its' way into embedded devices only. I, for one, wouldn't want the responsibility of updating an AV type product on the CPU - one failed update and *BOOM* no PC and no practical recovery method! Not like we have ever seen an update to AV software go bad.
