Paper Abstract

In the past several years, there has been a surge of new programmable mediaprocessors introduced to provide an alternative solution to ASICs and dedicated hardware circuitries in the multimedia PC and embedded consumer electronics markets. These processors attempt to combine the programmability of multimedia-enhanced general purpose processors with the performance and low cost of dedicated hardware. We have reviewed five current multimedia architectures and evaluated their strengths and weaknesses.
