Xtensa LX Processor Tops EEMBC Networking 2.0 Benchmarks

Tensilica's Xtensa LX processor achieved the highest score ever reported on the Networking Version 2.0 benchmark suite of the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBCĂ’). Xtensa LX is the first licensable processor core to complete certification on this challenging benchmark suite.

EEMBC benchmark scores, based on simulation, show that an optimized Xtensa LX processor core is significantly faster on a per-MHz basis than the only two other processors certified to date, the 1GHz PowerPC 750GX and 1.4 GHz PowerPC MPC7447A, both of which are full-chip, standard product processors. The Xtensa LX processor delivers this outstanding performance while simultaneously delivering a 4X code density advantage and more than a 100X advantage in both die area and power dissipation.
