[INQ] Nvidia has two CPU lines

NVIDIA IS GOING to release two types of CPUs in the near future. On June 3rd, according to the slides from this week's reviewers day. Luckily as they forgot to invite us, they forgot to NDA us as well so we can tell you all about the Tegra APX 2500 and CSX 600/650 while others can only fume. Awwwww.

ARM11 based system on a chip. This one is aimed at handheld devices in the same way that Atom is.

The chip itself comes in a 144mm2 package, not die, and can do 720p encode and decode at 14MBps. It supports the same last gen features as much of the current GeForce line, can do AA and AF, and will support OpenGL ES 2.0.

The big brother CSX 600 and 650 is aimed at larger machines with screens between handhelds and real laptops. It runs Wince, not XP or Me II because it is not x86, and in general makes you question why they bothered. The chip itself has 256K of L2 cache and can be die stacked to keep the footprint small.

This one runs at 700-800MHz and will support 1080p at 24FPS, not the full 60. It also has hard disk support and can run video in under 3W. If you are keeping track, this is about what Atom can do, but Atom doesn't have that pesky FPS limit.

More information about who is using this will trickle out in the coming week before Computex, and expect a few people to have designs on display there. Given the vast speed advantage Intel has here, you would have to question why people would bother, but, as P. T. Barnum was quoted as saying. µ
Not exactly the x86 I was hoping to see from them but it'll be interesting to see how it performs.

this is about what Atom can do, but Atom doesn't have that pesky FPS limit.
Atom can't decode 1080p realtime... George Zimmer guarantees it. Either the editor who wrote this review is stupid, or Intel gave out misinformation.

that's the MOST stupid article EVER!

the writer does not have any knowledge of computer architecture.

ARM11 is a RISC architecture, it uses much, much less energy at idle and load than Intel's bloated x86 CISC Atom. IMHO it's a much better architecture over all.

basically, those 2 new nVidia fab, ARM designed processor will not be Atom's contender, because they can easily overtake Atom in both performance and power saving.
Atom is aimed at low end Netbook laptops, while this 2 new nVidia-ARM chips are for mobile phones or PDA's.

I can assure you, 'forgetting' to invite the Inq is not an oversight on Nvidia's part.

Nearly all their articles consist of anywhere from 0-10% fact, with the rest being the writer's avenue to type up childish rants about whatever company the article is concerning. It's ridiculous.

Ever try coding something in ARM? It's a bloody nightmare.
