"Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Transmeta Corp. are
discussing various types of cooperation, including technology
exchanges on a possible new very low-end consumer PC
appliance, AMD president Hector Ruiz said in an interview
"AMD is also interested in Transmeta's low-power processor
technology, which could reduce power consumption of the Athlon and
Duron processors, he added. AMD is developing new Athlon and Duron
versions that will cut the present power consumption below 3 watts,
but Transmeta's technology might be able to cut this to 1 watt,
Ruiz said.Both AMD, Sunnyvale, and Transmeta, Santa Clara, could
benefit by cooperating on a new processor aimed at the sub-$400 PC
market, he said."
