AMD Geode Lx800 Development Board – Lx-db800d-eval-kit
I don’t think you’ll find anything more power-efficient than the Geode LX model, though, but there are some lesser expensive choices that get close. Unbox it, snap in the memory and CF card, plug in the wall wart, and you’re ready to install and boot your operating system of choice. Early x86 bit Am It is expected that the Geode line of processors will be updated less frequently due to the closure of the Geode design center.
You could pick up a laptop hard drive, but another clever thing about this board is that it allows you to use a cheap CompactFlash card as your storage medium — for the optimal low power, no moving parts install.

AMD bought the Geode business from National in August to augment its existing line of embedded x86 processor products.

For other uses, see Geode disambiguation. Whilst the processor family is best suited for thin clientset top box and embedded computing applications, it can be found in unusual applications such as the Nao robot and the Win Enterprise IP-PBX. It’s even smaller at 10cm x 7. The original Geode processor core itself processog derived from the Cyrix MediaGX platform, which was acquired in National’s merger with Cyrix in I can’t say “this is actual size” with a straight face without knowing the size and aspect ratio of your monitor, but it’s probably darn close.
Building Tiny, Ultra Low Power PCs
Well, assuming displlay have an enormous hand. I would not build an ultra-lower power PC assuming it will be tolerable for day-to-day web browsing and email reading, unless you’re comfortable using text mode or command-line interfaces exclusively. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
There are no official references to this processor except officials explaining that the batch of CPUs were “being shipped to specific customers”, though it is clear it has no relation with the other Geode NX CPUs other than sharing the same CPU socket Socket A. However, it was reported that the specific design team for Geode processors in Longmont, Coloradohas been closed, and 75 employees are being relocated to the new development facility in Fort Collins, Colorado.
List of AMD microprocessors. It may not look like much, but consider the specs: The NX part runs at 1.
The series was originally mkbo by National Semiconductor as the Geode family in Not only does it have a modern dual-core CPU, and fantastic procsssor capable integrated video — it’s an outstanding general purpose media sharing server, too. I’ve been following goede ultra low power, tiny form factor PC segment for quite a few years now. That’s in the ballpark for a powerful laptop, and far better than your garden variety desktop PC, which will draw somewhere between to watts of power.
Incomments by AMD indicated that there are no plans for any future micro architecture upgrades to the processor and that there will be no successor; however, the processors will still be available with the planned availability of the Geode LX extending through The actual dimensions are just under five inches on each side.
The Geode NX, with its strong FPU, is particularly suited for embedded devices with graphical performance requirements, such as information kiosks and casino gaming machines, such as video slots. Geode processors are optimized for low power consumption and low cost while still remaining compatible with software written for the x86 platform. However, they have come under competitive pressure from VIA on the x86 side, and ARM processors from various vendors taking much of the low-end business. You will need memory and a storage device, of course.
