Transmeta wants to double the performance of the Crusoe

Since the Crusoe processors have come under criticism because of their only moderate performance, Transmeta wants to deliver them at twice the speed from 2002 by replacing the current 128-bit interface with a 256-bit interface, which means 8 commands per clock cycle can be processed.

By converting the manufacturing process to the new 0.13µm technology, the power consumption and thus the heat development should also be reduced, which consequently enables higher clock frequencies, which will probably be above a GigaHertz. The first processors with a clock frequency of 800 to 900 MHz should appear in the second half of 2001.
