Reading over the specs of this chip makes it look like, basically, an AMD K5.
Their big selling point seems to be that they are full of themselves that
the die size of the chip is so small. One reason it is so small is that
a lot of the x86 opcodes are all done in the microcode. How it performs
in real-life, I have no idea but just reading their website makes me wonder
why they even bothered to release a chip like this now.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? Who knows? Who cares?
