or the last two decades, general-purpose processor design has been driven largely by non-real-time, standalone applications. But we believe applications will increasingly integrate new multimedia component technologies that will eventually shift the demand from traditional MIPS to media MIPS. By “MIPS,” we mean traditional computational horsepower; by “media MIPS” we mean media-specific horsepower. We also expect general-purpose processors, enabled by the continued exponential growth in… CONTINUE READING
