CUPP Computing is pleased to announce the completion of its “Hybrid PC” demo hardware.
Hybrid PC = Green Computing
CUPP Computing has finished development of a demo for an innovative Hybrid PC. This combines an high performance PC processor (x86/IA) and an low power processor (RISC/ARM) into a single platform. Allowing the user to choose low power/long battery life or high performance. This gives manufacturers the ability to deliver functionality previously impractical in a Personal Computer, and users the flexibility to use the PC in ways that best suits their needs. If implemented on a wide scale, this technology would have a significant impact on global power consumption.
CUPP Computing patented the integration of low power processors into the South Bridge/IOH of PC Chipsets. (link). This allows the seamless integration of Hybrid environments. It hoped that this technology leads to a new class of devices we call Computicator™. It is the full convergence of computing and communication.
This demo has full accessibility to all peripheries from both user modes, and most ports are shared. The TI OMAP is running Ubuntu LXDE, Midori Web Browser and Gimp. The PC is running Windows 7 Pro and Internet Explorer. We expect to bring a product to the market Q2’11
- ARM A8, TI OMAP 3430 at 720Mhz with 512MB RAM
- Intel CoreDuo™ Dual Core at 2.3 Ghz with 4GB RAM
- 320GB Shared Disk
- 16inch Shared LCD
- Shared Keyboard and Touchpad
- 3 USB Shared Ports
- HDMI Out Shared
CUPP Computing AS was incorporated in 2005 in Bergen, Norway. CUPP has patented a unique “hybrid” computing method called the “CISS” (CUPP Integrated Southbridge Solution link), which enables seamless integration of both high power (x86) and low power (RISC) processing directly through the chipset of any standard PC (desktops, notebooks, netbooks, and servers).
