Transmeta’s highly-acclaimed Efficeon processor delivered in mid-October 2003 after some delays is a 256-bit VLIW chip that integrates DDR SDRAM memory and AGP controllers as well as 512KB or 1MB L2 cache depending on its version. It uses special code-morph software to run conventional x86 applications and supports widely-used instruction sets, such as MMX, SSE and SSE2. The Efficeon utilizes 400MHz HyperTransport bus to connect I/O processors.
