AMD Introduces Line of Low-Power, High-Performance AMD Geode Embedded x86 Processors@ 2004/05/24
AMD Geode(TM) Solutions Model Numbers
AMD Geode Solutions are part of AMD's strategy to be the only processor manufacturer to offer assets, resources and vision for delivering x86 solutions for low-power embedded solutions up through the highest performing server platforms. The portfolio of processors reflects AMD's commitment to its customers, allowing design engineers to create a wide range of solutions using the large existing x86 software base, leveraging the benefits of low-power, high-performance solutions.
*The Geode NX 1500@6W processor operates at 1GHz and is supported by the AMD Geode NX DB1500 development board. The Geode NX 1750@14W operates at 1.4GHz. Model numbers reflect performance as described here: http://www.amd.com/connectivitysolut...odenxbenchmark
**The Geode GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW processor operates at 400MHz and is supported by the AMD Geode GX DB533 development board. The Geode GX email@example.comW processor operates at 366MHz and the Geode GX 466@.9W processor operates at 333 MHz. Model numbers reflect performance as described here: http://www.amd.com/connectivitysolut...odegxbenchmark
AMD will use model numbers that are based on the benchmarks developed by Synchromesh Computing to identify the AMD Geode processors. The new model numbers designate relative performance and increase the visibility of power consumption when it is a consideration. The new model number system for AMD Geode Solutions is represented by the processor's relevant performance rating followed by its power usage. With the transition to the new model number system, for example, the AMD Geode GX2 processor will be known as the AMD Geode GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW processor. The AMD Geode GX DB533 development board supports the GX email@example.comW processor, the GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW processor and the GX email@example.comW processor.
"The model numbers have been designed to meet the needs of our customers, providing a quick view of the performance and power capabilities of each processor in the AMD Geode Solutions product line," said Iain Morris, group vice president, AMD Personal Connectivity Solutions Group. "Using the model numbers, customers can determine if they need an extremely low-power solution as offered by our AMD Geode GX line, or a high-performance embedded solution that is now addressed with our AMD Geode NX product offering. We are committed to providing long-term support to our customers who require low-power, high-performance embedded solutions with the AMD Geode Solutions product line."
AMD Geode(TM) Processors
Offering embedded x86 solutions that range from sub-one watt to 14 watts, customers have the ability to select the processor that best meets their individual needs. These low-power, high-performance processors are available to power a number of products, including single board computers, Windows(R) XP-based mobile devices, point of sale, information and transaction kiosks and telecommunications and networking equipment.
The AMD Geode NX 1500@6W processor is the newest low-power, high-performance processor in AMD Geode Solutions. The NX 1500@6W processor is designed for high-end thin clients, high-end printers, point-of-sale systems, information and transaction kiosks and telecommunications and networking equipment. The Geode NX 1500@6W processor allows for easy design of fanless applications. Providing options to its customers, the AMD Geode NX 1750@14W processor is also available. The AMD Geode(TM) NX DB1500 development board is also available and supports the NX 1500@6W processor and the NX 1750@14W processor.
The AMD Geode NX DB1500 development board is a complete hardware and software solution that serves as a model for the development of future high-performance embedded applications. The NX DB1500 development board integrates processor, memory and peripherals together on a single board, providing a complete ready-to-run system, enabling developers to test the performance of the NX 1500@6W processor in a variety of demanding embedded applications. Using the NX DB1500 development board, designers are able to create low-power, high-performance solutions for high-end thin clients, high-end printers and information and transaction kiosks.
Built on the GeodeLink(TM) architecture, the AMD Geode GX processors can deliver competitive system performance at lower clock rates. These processors are designed for the thin client, single board computers and mobile device markets.
The AMD Geode GX DB533 development board provides an integrated hardware and software system that leverages the power of the GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW processor. The GX DB533 development board integrates processor, memory and peripherals together on a single board, along with debugging assist features and software. The GX DB533 development board enables the development of low-power, high-performance solutions for thin clients and mobile PADs. The AMD Geode GX DB533 development board supports the GX email@example.comW processor, the GX 466@.9W processor and the GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW processor.
