Geode™ GX1 Processor Series
Low Power Integrated x86 Solution
The National Semiconductor® Geode™ GX1 processor
series is a line of integrated processors specifically
designed to power information appliances for entertain-
ment, education, and business. Serving the needs of con-
and business professionals alike, it’s the perfect
for IA (information appliance) applications such as
thin clients, interactive set-top boxes, and personal internet
The Geode GX1 processor series is divided into three main
categories as defined by the core operating voltage. Avail-
able with core voltages of 2.0V, 1.8V, and 1.6V, it offers
extremely low typical power consumption (1.2W, 1.0W, and
0.8W, respectively) leading to longer battery life and
enabling small form-factor, fanless designs. Typical power
consumption is defined as an average, measured running
Microsoft Windows at 80% Active Idle (Suspend-on-Halt)
with a display resolution of 800x600x8 bpp at 75 Hz.
