"Ending almost five years of secrecy, the Transmeta Corporation announced a radical new microprocessor design today that promises tough competition for the Intel Corporation. The new chips are compatible with Intel's products while consuming substantially less power and costing less."

"Transmeta's processors, by emphasizing software, are intended to improve on portable versions of Pentium-class microprocessors that power today's personal computers. The company said it was also pushing toward the widely anticipated post-PC era of mobile Internet computing."

"The chips are already being manufactured by the International Business Machines Corporation, which expects to begin shipping them by midyear."
