¡°Goodson-2E¡± --¨C New Generation CPU Successfully Developed

On Sep . 13th, Chinese scientists announced the successful development of a new generation CPU named ¡°Goodson-2E¡± , which can rival early-series Intel Pentium IV processor in performance. ¡°Goodson-2E¡± CPU contains 47 million transistors. As small as two thumbnails, its power consumption ranges between three to eight watts per hour, ¡°Goodson-2E¡± CPU has reached international advanced level in terms of single processor design. The highest frequency is 10 GHz, and the peak computing speed is as high as 4000 m illion f loating p oint/s econd (MFLOPS) double precision. It is a CPU chip with complete home- grown intellectual property right.

At present, ¡°Goodson-2E¡± CPU is under mass production, and will be available in the market by the end of 2006. The research team of ¡°Goodson-2E¡± CPU is now working to design a multi-core processor for ¡°Goodson-3E¡± CPU.
