Intel is currently working on MMX2 extensions for next gen Xscale processors, which should bring us clearer graphics, faster video and better power efficiency for cellphones and PDAs.

Given the rapid growth of the mobile phone market, it is no surprise that also Intel claims a slice of the revenue pie by making its chips more attractive. At the recent IDF, the company announced its "Hermon" platform which will organize the current "Bulverde" chip into four different platforms - low-end consumer, mid-range consumer, high-tier consumer and high-end digital enterprise.

Intel Wireless MMX2 technology offers advanced features to simplify the development of feature-rich audio, video, graphics and voice applications, providing users with innovative, reliable communications solutions that can run the latest multimedia content.
