"While folk in Blighty were noshing away at their choccie Easter
eggs yesterday, start-up Transmeta was busy announcing support for
its range of x86 mobile processors to the tune of a $70 million
plus investment from some heavyweight PC names."
"The firm has received money from Compaq, Gateway, Sony,
Samsung, AOL and Phoenix, it announced. Taiwanese firms Quanta,
Compal and FIC also announced investments, and although these last
three may not be household names, they are significant wins."
"...The firm's Crusoe microprocessors offer low power
capabilities along with x86 capability, and the announcement is
significant because of the virtual stranglehold Intel has held on
the top end of the notebook chip market."
