The next-generation of processors is here and it’s in theform of the Via Nano processor. This successor to the company’s C7 range offers4x more power, utilising technology first used in its Isaiah range.
The chip is compact, at just 21x21mm and allows Blu-ray HDplayback and is said to be the perfect partner for power-hungry PC games suchas EA's superb Crisis.
But while it may feed the power-hungry, the chip itself usesvery little juice – 0.1W when idle.
Small is beautiful
Wenchi Chen, President and CEO, VIA Technologies, had thisto say about the new chip: "VIANano processors represent the next generation of x86 technology, providing thefundamental building blocks for a new genre of optimized computing solutions.
“'Small is Beautiful' is more than a design strategy; it'sour vision of where the PC market is heading and our new processors will helpthe market realise that dream."
The new chips are available now, so expect to find them in notebooksand laptops later in the year.
