SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETL - News), a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced the XLP864 multi-core processor, the industry's highest performance multi-core communications processor featuring 64 NXCPUs. The XLP864 processor is the latest member of NetLogic Microsystems' best-in-class XLP multi-core, multi-threaded processor family, which has been validated by multiple Tier One customers to deliver 300-400 percent performance improvement over competing multi-core processors in real-world benchmarks on a core-by-core basis.

By doubling the number of NXCPUs compared to the industry-leading XLP832 processor, which has set itself as the gold standard of advanced multi-core processing, the new XLP864 multi-core processor further enhances NetLogic Microsystems' performance leadership and further separates the company from the competition in multi-core communications processing. NetLogic Microsystems' new XLP864 multi-core, multi-threaded processor is optimized to deliver 80Gbps throughput and 120 million packets-per-second (Mpps) of intelligent application performance for next-generation 3G/4G mobile wireless infrastructure, metro Ethernet, security, storage, enterprise, edge and core infrastructure network applications.

"We are pleased to raise the bar once again and be on the forefront of technical leadership with our new XLP864 processor, which will deliver unprecedented performance and functionality for our customers' next-generation systems," said Chris O'Reilly, vice president of marketing at NetLogic Microsystems. "This comes at an ideal time as the communications industry struggles to keep pace with the dramatic increase in bandwidth and traffic complexity. We believe our XLP multi-core processor is the best solution to capitalize on this trend."
