RMI's Processor Families Provide the Ultimate in Acceleration through Advanced Interconnect Technologies

    Raza Microelectronics, Inc. Supports Intel Geneseo and QuickAssist
Technology Initiatives Extending Performance in Next Generation Products

    SAN FRANCISCO, September 18 /CNW/ - Raza Microelectronics, Inc. (RMI(R)),
a leading supplier of processors for communications and consumer applications
announced today that RMI will support the broad market attach strategy of
Intel Corporation that involves using Geneseo (next generation PCI Express(*))
technologies in the integration of RMI's XLR and XLS Processors into
Intel-based products to provide unparalleled performance. Currently the
high-performance acceleration capabilities of RMI's Scalable Processor
Solutions(TM) Processor families can be integrated with an Intel Platform to
produce solutions providing the ultimate in features and performance. RMI will
be showcasing its XLR532 PCIX-I Card as part of the "Wall of Accelerators" at
the Intel Developer's Forum in San Francisco from September 17-20, 2007.

    RMI's Scalable Processor Solutions are multi-core multi-threaded
processors providing a rich set of features and performance to address the
wide variety of integrated next generation applications, including integrated
security, Web services, virtualized storage, load balancing, server offload
and intelligent routing and switching systems. The XLR 700 and XLR 500 series
processors are software and hardware compatible and each processor is
available in a variety of power options including standard, low and ultra low
power. The XLS Processor(TM) family consists of cost-effective devices for
embedded communication and networking, SMB and client oriented solutions.
These solutions include integrated security, access points, routers and switch
products. Each device within its series is software and hardware compatible,
and the XLS 600, 400, and 200 series processors are software compatible.

    Today the integrated use of an Scalable Processor Solutions processor
with Intel(R) Xeon(R) Multi-Core processors provides best of class performance
in many solutions such as communications and storage applications. By taking
advantage of the packet processing capabilities of the RMI Scalable Processor
Solutions processor with the compute processing capabilities of the Intel
processor, applications can be accelerated to a new level. For example, IBM
has used this integrated RMI/Intel architecture in their Proventia GX6116,
which provides exceptional performance in network throughput while providing
high-performance intrusion protection.

    For future RMI Scalable Processor Solutions, the addition of Geneseo
(next generation PCI Express(*)) technologies will provide the next level in
high performance. RMI will include this capability in its next generation
high-end XLR Processor products, and with this, the full capabilities of the
XLR Processor will be able to take advantage of the exceptional speed and low
latency of the of the new interface.

    "The collaboration between RMI and Intel is extremely valuable and is a
strong testament to the strength of our solutions and the adoption of the XLR
and XLS Processors by our customers," said Lance Smith, vice president and
general manager, Scalable Processor Solutions, RMI. "This collaboration will
help drive future implementations of our products and ultimately provide our
customers with the solutions they need to conduct their business."

    "By working with RMI, our mutual customers will be able to deploy
advanced solutions available in the marketplace. We see the combined use of
RMI's XLR and XLS Processors in Intel-based platforms as a way customers can
deliver a scalable range of price and performance solutions, each of which
provide unparalleled features and performance," said Anthony Neal-Graves,
General Manager, marketing and technology solutions, Intel Corporation.
