geode - Computer Definition
A family of X86-based microprocessors from AMD. Natively running Windows and Linux applications, the 32-bit Geode chips are used in embedded systems due to their low power requirements. The Geode was originally launched in 1999 by National Semiconductor, using a processor core from Cyrix after the two companies merged in 1997. In 2003, AMD acquired the Geode series. See x86 and AMD.
