SANTA CLARA, Calif., and ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 10, 2003 - Intel Corporation today unveiled two high-performance, programmable digital media microprocessors that have been optimized for the document imaging market segment. The new digital media processors were developed in cooperation with Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX). Intel is now sampling the new processors to document processing manufacturers worldwide.
The Intel® MXP5800 and Intel® MXP5400 digital media processors are designed to perform complex tasks required in mid-range and high-end digital imaging products such as digital copiers, scanners, printers and multifunction devices. The processors combine the high performance of custom-made application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) with the programmability of a microprocessor. The new processors will allow document imaging manufacturers to significantly reduce their development costs and design cycles, and deliver products with ASIC-like performance that are based on programmable silicon building blocks.
The MXP5800 incorporates a scalable array of eight compute engines that combine data-flow-driven processors and specialized hardware accelerators to achieve high performance in digital media processing tasks. The MXP5400 contains four compute engines. Together, these two new processors allow document imaging manufacturers to deliver products that address a wide range of price and performance. In addition, multiple processors can be combined for even higher levels of performance. The multiple compute engines inside the processor are independently programmable; thus, each can perform a different operation in parallel.
