AMD launches Geode Processor to provide full desktop functionality on mobile and embedded devices
Posted on 23-May-2005 19:02 | Tags Filed under: News



Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. has announced availability of the AMD Geode LX 800@0.9W processor. The company says this new processor will enable consumers to experience full-featured, desktop-style computing on a new generation of x86 architecture-based embedded and mobile devices. Requiring less than one watt of power, the AMD Geode LX 800@0.9W processor supports the Microsoft Windows XP and XP Embedded operating systems. This low power requirement and compatibility with established operating systems will allow users to leverage familiar business and consumer applications on low-power, fan-less portable products.

The company expects the x86 architecture, low power consumption and performance will make the AMD Geode LX processor ideal for a variety of consumer electronics and computing markets, including multimedia devices, single-board computers, access devices and other general embedded applications. Examples of products that would benefit from the AMD Geode LX processor's capabilities include HDTVs, IP set-top boxes, thin clients, point-of-sale kiosks and Windows-powered tablet PCs.

The AMD Geode LX processor provides increased memory bandwidth through a DDR interface and enhanced I/O throughput with USB2.0. With these technical enhancements, engineers are free to design products without compromising battery life, size, mobility or performance. In addition, the processor's ability to optimize Windows XP and XP Embedded offers simplified programming and a familiar environment for consumers.

The AMD Geode LX 800@0.9W processor and AMD Geode CS5536 companion device chipset is available at US$45 in 10,000 unit shipments. Slower speed variants also are available.
