MIPS prepping multi-threaded, 64-bit low-power CPU

Posted on Monday, March 28 2011 @ 21:59:38 CEST by


X-bit Labs reports MIPS Technologies is working on a new processor core that offers 64-bit support, with multi-threading and low power consumption.
The core, the first in a family of cores code named "Prodigy", will be officially launched later in 2011.

"With our forthcoming core, our customers can now quickly and easily develop MIPS64 solutions at a fraction of the cost and time it would take to develop a 64-bit core themselves. We are pleased to offer this solution, for which we are seeing increasing demand. Our customers can leverage not only the advanced 64-bit Prodigy IP core, but they will also benefit from the surrounding infrastructure and broad, mature ecosystem that are already in place for the MIPS64 architecture as well as multiprocessing and multi-threading on MIPS," said Art Swift, vice president of marketing and business development at MIPS Technologies.

By offering the combination of a 64-bit architecture, SMT technology and coherent multiprocessing in an off-the-shelf IP core, MIPS is providing the mass market with a fast path to performance, efficiency and scalability for advanced networking, storage, mobile and digital consumer designs, the company indicated.
