Gobi

Gobi (go´bê)
A desert of southeast Mongolia and northern China. It consists mainly of a series of shallow alkaline basins.

Gobi

Gobi, extensive desert area in central Asia, principally in Mongolia. It is about 1610 km (about 1000 mi) wide and about 970 km (about 600 mi) long. It is located west of the Da Hinggan Ling (Greater Khingan Range) and east of the Tien Shan range. The Gobi is essentially a plateau set between higher mountains. The surface consists mostly of rolling gravel plains interspersed with low ranges and isolated hills. Most of the region has a thin growth of grass, scrub, and thorn sufficient to feed the flocks of the nomadic herders who live on the plateau.

The first Europeans to cross the Gobi were Italian traveler Marco Polo and his father and uncle, who completed the trek about 1275. In modern times a number of expeditions have explored the Gobi, including several under the leadership of American naturalist Roy Chapman Andrews during the 1920s. Andrews's discoveries included fossilized internal linkdinosaur eggs.

Cyrix will introduce Gobi. Its CPU core,  code-named Cayenne, will be based on the M II  core but will add faster floating-point operations, MMX units and 3DNow instructions as well as 256K of on-chip L2 cache. As for AMD, it plans to release a 0.18-micron version of Athlon.
