Although the Realta chip from Silicon Optix (which was a direct port of the SIMD architecture and algorithms used in the Teranex multi-board boxes) is not in any current products that I'm aware of, the spiritual successor HQV Vida chip is available. The HQV Vida, although not containing a programmable SIMD architecture inside, is essentially a direct hardware implementation of the same subset of Teranex algos that were in the Realta, along with some further improvements to the de-interlacing portion and massive improvements to the de-noising portion (compared to a single chip Realta design)
(Disclaimer: I worked for Silicon Optix from inception to shortly before it was bought out by IDT in 2008, worked on the Realta and Reon designs, and was the primary hardware engineer for the de-interlacing portion of the design that became the HQV Vida)
