Examples of products that would benefit from the AMD Geode LX processor’s capabilities include HDTVs, IP set-top boxes, thin clients, point-of-sale kiosks and Windows-powered tablet PCs. Furthermore, new categories of x86-based mobile multimedia devices that merge full desktop computing functionality with small form factor, battery-powered portability are now possible.

Offering the industry’s highest performance per watt, the AMD Geode LX processor provides increased memory bandwidth through a DDR interface and enhanced I/O throughput with USB2.0. With these technical enhancements, engineers are free to design innovative products without compromising battery life, size, mobility or performance. In addition, the processor’s ability to optimize Windows XP and XP Embedded offers simplified programming and a familiar environment for consumers.

The AMD Geode™ LX 800@0.9W processor and AMD Geode CS5536 companion device chipset is available at $45 in 10,000 unit shipments. Slower speed variants also are available. Contact your local AMD sales office or representative for pricing details.
