As a part of its Asia expansion initiative, Transmeta Corp. will showcase its new Efficeon processor made using 90nm fabrication process at the Computex Taipei 2004 show in Taiwan. The 90nm Efficeon microprocessors will sport LongRun2 technology for optimized power consumption and will also increase performance over 130nm predecessor. The first 90nm chip to be demonstrated at Computex Taipei 2004 later this week will function at 1.60GHz, about 300MHz higher compared to today’s flagship Efficeon chip. Transmeta’s processors that will debut in products later this year will also sport NX bit, a security feature supported by AMD64 and future Intel’s Pentium 4 central processing units.
