Chip company NatSemi-Cyrix has won Casio as a customer for a new version of its Media GX processor. The company said that Casio will use its MMX enhanced low voltage Media GX processor in a range of A5 mini notebooks, which will become available in Japan towards the end of this year. The chip, which includes MMX instructions, multimedia and system logic functions, as well as a PCI controller, reduces system power needs by as much as 75 per cent over competing processors from Intel and AMD, claimed Cyrix. It gives a 50 per cent reduction over previous version of the Media GX. According to Masami Chikauchi, director of information technology systems at Casio: "The Media GX has all the attributes we required for our new A5 mini-note book PC." Other companies, including Acer, are also understood to be evaluating the low power Media GX. ®
