Sudhian today is taking a look at what makes AMD's Geode processors tick and compares them to VIA's current offerings in the embedded system field.
Ask a computer enthusiast or industry follower to name an AMD product and chances are you'll hear about the Athlon 64 or AthlonXP. Those who've followed Sunnyvale for an extended period of time may rattle off the K6, K6-2, or even the K5 as examples of earlier products, but one microprocessor line you aren't likely to hear much about is Geode. The AMD Geode is Sunnyvale's own embedded processor line, and its targeted at a variety of application scenarios, from internet appliances to embedded thin client applications.
