Transmeta Corp. has unveiled Efficeon - the brand name and logo for its latest TM8000 microprocessor family. Efficeon targets users of ultra-portable and mainstream notebook computers. Likewise, Efficeon enables new classes of devices such as tablet PCs, ultra-PCs, silent desktop computers, blade servers, and embedded systems.

"Until Transmeta released the Crusoe processor in 2000, the mobile computer market was stagnating with repurposed desktop technology, oversized and overweight hardware, and disappointing growth," said Rob Enderle, emerging technology expert for the Enderle Group. "Crusoe showed the computer industry what was possible and helped build the excitement that the market now enjoys. Efficeon has the potential to take advantage of that growth, and we've been told by laptop OEMs that this new Transmeta chip provides positive differentiation and positions well against Intel's Pentium M."
