Hardware site claims Transmeta scoop

Upgradeable CPU?

Our friends over at JCs are claiming to have privileged information on Transmeta. The information sounds valid and chimes with some of what we have already heard. According to JC, the CPU will have an embedded north bridge, use a proprietary socket design, 16Mb of "special" memory and a flash chip, allowing upgradeability. It will be fabbed by IBM Micro, as revealed here last year. Go to JCs site for the lot. ® See also Transmeta struggling to make silicon sing Transmeta chip to arrive by Q4 Transmeta reveals radical new chip design 615 it still alive in a Transmeta way Transmeta letters to the editors Transmeta to use IBM fabs after Cyrix loss
