"Transmeta Corp.'s IPO filing Thursday offered glimpses into the company's past and future, including a plan to manufacture a 1-GHz chip by 2001."

"The company filed an S1 form with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday, announcing the company's intent to file for a public offering at a forthcoming date. But for now, Transmeta, Santa Clara, Calif., has all of the current appeal --and all of the profits -- of yesterday's dot-com company."

"In its filing, the company laid out an aggressive roadmap through 2001, disclosing new members of its "Crusoe" family, the TM5800 chip for notebook PCs and the TM3300 and TM3400 chips for Internet appliances."

"But Transmeta also disclosed a sizeable dose of red ink, as well as warnings that the company might never be profitable."
