Loongson 2F

Loongson 2F is the latest processor in Loongson 2 Family. Also manufactured by STMicroelectronics.

No improvements compared to 2E except following points:

  • Higher Clock Frequence: 1.2GHz maximum
  • Advanced power control technology: less than 6 Watt under 1GHz in the same 90nm
  • Intergrated DDR2 controller
  • Intergrated northbridge:Faster IO with PCI-X 66 bus(compared with former PCI bus)
  • Smaller Packaging.
