Top three mobile application threats

Rise Technology has unveiled its mP6 line of processors, low-cost x86 compatibles aimed at the sub-$700 desktop and sub-$1,000 notebook markets. In a release timed at 5.17am by the California clock, the company claimed to have already demonstrated "a number of Windows-based multimedia applications" running on the chip to the adoring attendees of the Microprocessor Forum today. Workaholics? We got 'em, evidently... The mP6 is low power consumption, and is aimed at what Intel refers to as the 'Basic PC' market - interactive education, entertainment, digital imaging and other consumer-oriented applications, says Rise. "The mP6-based platforms allow OEMs to provide more value and features at a lower cost than performance PCs," said Rise CEO David Lin. The chip has a three-way superscalar design, pipelined CPU and three-way superscalar MMX technology, which according to Rise makes soft DVD playbcack, softmodem and 3D graphics run more effectively. It also has power management built into the core, so can be used for notebook computers immediately. ® Click for more stories
