On January 19, 2000, 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, we believe that we
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
in ways other processors can't. And in doing so, Crusoe
is the first processor to offer benefits that really matter
You see, Crusoe is different in almost every way.
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
truly innovative new platform in over 25 years.
Crusoe, mobile devices can be made smaller and
lighter than ever. These new devices will be more comfortable
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, mobile
devices running on
Crusoe run far longer on a single battery charge, and Crusoe-powered
ultra-dense servers do far more work per watt, far more
All of which means Crusoe isn't just
another processor. It's a whole new world. Let us
show you around.
