Geode GX and LX processors are typically found in devices such as thin clients and industrial control systems.
SOM – AMD Geode™ LX Process with CS, ETX CPU Module – Advantech
AMD bought the Geode business from National in August to augment its existing line of embedded x86 processor products. List of AMD microprocessors.
It is expected that the Geode line of processors will be updated less frequently due to the closure of the Geode design center. 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. 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.

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 aamd than sharing the same CPU socket Socket A. 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 amdd with the planned availability of the Geode LX extending through Advanced Micro Devices x86 microprocessors Embedded microprocessors.
Geode processors are optimized for low power consumption and low cost while still remaining compatible with software written for the x86 platform. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The power consumption is AMD expanded the Geode series to two classes of processor: Geode processors tightly integrate some of the functions normally provided by a separate chipsetsuch as the northbridge.
The Geode NX, with its strong FPU, is particularly suited for embedded c5s536 with graphical performance requirements, such as information kiosks and casino gaming machines, such as video slots. The NX part runs at 1. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The original Geode processor core itself is derived from the Cyrix MediaGX platform, which was acquired in National’s merger with Cyrix in Retrieved from ” https: LX brought many improvements, such as higher speed DDR, a re-designed instruction pipe, and a more powerful display controller.
However, they have come under competitive pressure from VIA c5s536 the x86 side, and ARM processors from various vendors taking much of the low-end business.
