|I was looking at National Semi's Geode pages, and they note that they are going to phase out the GXm series in favor of the GX1. I emailed NS for more info, and they claimed that the GX1 is essentially a GXm created with a smaller process (0.18), and that it should serve anywhere a GXm would, though at a lower voltage. I checked the block diagram and pin-out, and they look identical. The draw is that you can get 333Mhz parts, and they run cooler at their max speed than the 266Mhz GXm does.|
Based on the NS email, I bought a sample of the 333Mhz GX1 processor from pioneer ($162!), but the system doesn't boot. I've checked the voltage and multiplier - but no action so far.
Has anyone played with the GX1 at all, or know if they will work in a system originally designed for a GXm?
