Transmeta chip to use special fast DRAM

Cause it’s got to be very very fast for the PDA

Sources at the Computex show in Taipei today revealed that special memory called ESDRAM will be needed for the chip Transmeta will unleash on the world later this year. As revealed here some months ago, Transmeta technology will be used in a high speed communications/telecommunications device when it is released. Our source, who did not wish to be named, said the ESDRAM was needed because the chip itself is likely to supplement a small on chip cache for the very small chip it is producing. That chip is expected to run at over 150Mz, she added. ®
