Although the fraud is hard to detect because the computer still operates properly, savvy computer users in places as far removed as England, Vancouver, New Zealand, Massachusetts, Australia and, of course, San Jose, have complained of cacheless computers.
This generic computer was also deceptively cacheless.
Steve Roddy, Tensilica's vice president of marketing added, "The Xtensa configurable processor architecture is so flexible that it is currently in production in functions as varied as a simple cacheless
controller, a mid-range Linux applications processor, a high-performance 3-issue VLIW general purpose processor, an audio DSP (digital signal processor), a video DSP engine, high performance image processors, and high performance network processors.
The GigaRouter upgrades are designed to optimize the high-end router for Internet backbone applications and include expanded route tables, faster packet forwarding rates, cacheless
routing and an HSSI interface.
