VIA Technologies formally announced that its new dual-core, 40nm Nano X2 processors have been released. At present, processors are available to motherboards and OEMs, with systems available in Q1 of 2011. VIA will most likely have at least a few motherboards and notebooks/netbooks on display at CES, but the company has yet to name any major partners for these products. "The VIA Nano X2 processor arrives at a time when software architectures are now optimized for multi-thread computing," commented Richard Brown, VP International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "Improvements in semi-conductor fabrication... Read more...
With all the buzz around VIA's recent announcement of their next generation low power Isaiah mobile processor, we thought it would be a good idea to get together with some of VIA's top architecture and design brass in a "fireside chat" sort of venue.  The idea was to provide a little more insight into what the team at VIA feels will be the real value proposition of their ultra low power Isaiah mobile X86 processor and how the product will differentiate versus current and future offerings from the likes of Intel, AMD and others.  Our direct line of contact was with VIA's Centaur design...

With all the buzz around VIA's recent announcement of their next generation low power Isaiah mobile processor and the parade of online coverage of the recent press event VIA held at their Centaur design center in Texas, we felt rather than regurgitating the usual marketing fluff and press pitch material, we would get together with some of VIA's top architecture and design brass in a "fireside chat" sort of venue. The idea was to provide a little more insight into what the team at VIA feels will be the real value proposition of their ultra low power Isaiah mobile X86 processor and how... Read more...

Via Technologies, and their subsidiary, Centaur, think their next generation 64-bit processor, the Isaiah, will outperform Intel's soon to be released Silverthorne chip. Glenn Henry of Centaur hedges his bet a little, as hard info about Silverthorne's capabilities is hard to come by. And he says Isaiah won't be able to match a Core 2 Duo. But in the niche of low power consumption/high performance/inexpensive processors, Isaiah's "out-of-order" processor architecture might make Via a winner.An in-order processor is similar to a factory with a single assembly line. The chip can only work on one operation... Read more...
