NVIDIA to Make Core Logic - NVIDIA to Make Core Logic

develop highly integrated media communications processors for Transmeta’s Efficeon processor, enabling multimedia and graphics capabilities for a wide range of mobile PC platforms. From technological point of view there is nothing too impressive here. Transmeta Efficeon integrates PC3200-supporting memory controller in the chip, just like AMD x86-64 processors. Besides, the processor incorporates AGP 4x interface for graphics solutions as well as on-chip 400MHz HyperTransport bus interface for connecting other components of the system. As a result, NVIDIA does not have to do a lot of work here, especially keeping in mind that Transmeta Efficeon-based notebooks do not require a lot of graphics or processing power. What NVIDIA needs to offer Transmeta is an inexpensive AGP 4x graphics processor with some 3D capabilities as well as integrated TMDS, LVDS, RAMDAC and other output controllers. Probably NVIDIA will supply its code-named NV33 chip for such computers. As far as I am aware, NVIDIA meant this part to be a very low-power GPU for mobile devices. Nevertheless, the company may eventually offer more powerful solutions with low power consumption as well.
