Transmeta prepares new mobile chip


C|Net has the scoop on Transmeta's upcoming Efficeon processor, which will see action in mini-notebooks and tablets by the end of the year. The chip is apparently being targeted at more standard notebook configurations, too.

The Efficeon will probably face off against the low end of Intel's Pentium M line, though whether the new chip will be able to match the Pentium M's impressive performance and low power consumption remains to be seen. Transmeta is claiming that the Efficeon is between 50 and 80% faster than the previous generation of Crusoe processors, but that may not be enough to catch a low voltage Pentium M or Mobile Athlon XP-M.
