RISC 1GHz at 2.5W
Posted on: 09/21/2000 06:57 AM

Well if you are one of them MIPS type of guy (or gal) you will enjoy this. At the Embedded Processor Forum in San Jose two new RISC processors were announced one was a 1ghz processor running at an amazing 2.5w dissipation.
The SB-1 announced by SiByte dissipates 2.5W in 1-GHz operation, and the Au 1000 from Alchemy dissipates only 900mW at 500MHz. When dissipation is calculated on a per-frequency basis, this works out to 2.5mW/MHz for the former, and 1.8mW/MHz for the latter
