GeodeNX s AMD Geode NX Embedded CPUs

AMD today announced a new line of low-power, high-performance AMD Geode(TM)
processors, the AMD Geode NX 1500@6W processor* and the AMD Geode NX 1750@14W
processor. In addition to introducing the AMD Geode NX processors, AMD is
renaming the current AMD Geode GX2 processor to AMD Geode GX [email protected]
processor. Also, available is the AMD Geode GX [email protected] processor and the
AMD Geode [email protected] processor. The new naming system is based on the
Performance-Power Rating that emphasizes the importance of the balance between
performance and power for the embedded x86 processor market.

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:

The Geode GX [email protected] processor operates at 400MHz and is supported by the
AMD Geode GX DB533 development board. The Geode GX [email protected] processor operates
at 366MHz and the Geode GX 466@.9W processor operates at 333 MHz. Model numbers
reflect performance as described here:

.

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
[email protected] processor. The AMD Geode GX DB533 development board supports the GX
[email protected] processor, the GX [email protected] processor and the GX [email protected] 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

GeodeNX 1 AMD Geode NX Embedded CPUs

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® XP-based
mobile devices, point of sale, information and transaction kiosks and
telecommunications and networking equipment.

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.
