The heart of many of our mobilemedia devices is a multimedia processor that can handle 3D graphics for gaming and for rendering video. RMI has been showing off its latest media processor called the Alchemy Au1300 targeted at devices needing high performance with low power consumption.
The processor can offer performance up to 800Mhz and decode 720p resolution video using H.264. The power needs for the processor are under 1/2 a watt at full chip power. That means you can get performance out of the processor without getting a short battery life at the same time.
The Au1300 includes a high performance graphics engine from ARM called the Mali. The processor is powerful enough to drive resolutions on LCD screens up to 1920 x 1200. The company expects to see the processor used in navigation devices and more.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
