Transmeta Corporation introduced Crusoe, a new microprocessor, into a market long controlled by one dominant company. Over the years, many companies have tried to do the same, and none of them has been very successful.
But unlike all those other companies, Transmeta believes that they produced something truly revolutionary. And that it’s destined to change everything. Now, just about this time you’re thinking, Ah, just what the world needs, another processor company making big promises. And that sentiment would certainly be understandable, if Crusoe were just another processor.
But it’s not. Unlike everything else that’s come before it, the Crusoe processor is not technology for technology’s sake. It’s technology with a purpose. Crusoe is the first processor designed from the ground up to solve the problems of mobile and Internet computing in ways other processors can’t. And in doing so, Crusoe is the first processor to offer benefits that really matter to people.
The Crusoe processor was designed to fill the needs of mobile users. The first smart processor of its kind, Crusoe delivers high performance, longer battery life, and runs cooler than conventional chips. Being x86 compatible, the Crusoe processor family enables a whole new world of ultra-light mobile notebooks, and Internet appliances.
Transmeta is dedicated to enhancing the user’s experience. Transmeta believes in putting the users daily needs first and foremost. Whether you’re at work, at home, or on the move, Crusoe will be there to improve your lifestyle. From lightweight, extended battery life notebooks to meet one’s mobile computing needs to ultra-dense servers that help save electricity and costs, Crusoe is there.
You see, Crusoe is different in almost every way. Unlike the industry’s legacy hardware-only processors, Crusoe is a unique combination of software and hardware. It’s this radical design that gives Crusoe its important advantages, and manufacturers of all kinds of electronic devices their first truly innovative new platform in over 25 years. Thanks to Crusoe, mobile devices can be made smaller and lighter than ever.
These new devices will be more comfortable to use, too, because Crusoe generates very little heat - a problem that plagues the industry’s legacy hardware-only processors. And because it uses far less power and mobile devices running on Crusoe run far longer on a single battery charge. All of which means Crusoe isn't just another processor. It’s a whole new world. Let us show you around.
