The RMI Alchemy Au1300 Processor Family is ideal for consumer devices requiring high CPU performance, low power consumption, and rich media capabilities. The Alchemy Au1300 supports integrated 3D acceleration, performance up to 800MHz, and video decode resolution up to 720p including H.264 main profile. The Au1300 Family also includes further enhancements to power management resulting in industry-leading full-chip power rates of less than 1/2 watt at speed.
The Alchemy Au1300 Processor is an advanced, high performing integrated processor for portable media based applications, including Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), Home Media Player Devices such as Advanced Digital Photo Frames, 3D Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs), Portable Media Players (PMPs), Audio/Video Networking, thin clients and other multimedia devices. The Au1300 Processor extends the performance and enriches the media experience beyond that of previous generation devices, while maintaining overall system power rates of less than ½ watt.
The Au1300 also delivers an enhanced Media Acceleration Engine (MAE2), providing hardware Bit Stream Acceleration and entropy decode that were formerly performed by the CPU core. This enables High Definition (HD) video decode at significantly higher bit rates then prior generation devices and also frees up additional CPU performance “headroom” enabling multi-tasking capabilities such as browsing, video chat and other communication features.
