VIA for China

 

HP has chosen the VIA C7-D processor for it's low-cost, low-power consumption desktop aimed at the Chinese market.

The HP Compaq dx2020 will be based on a 1,5GHz C7-D, VIA CN700 chipset with integrated UniChrome Pro II graphics and up to 1GB of DDR2 533 RAM. The new machine seems similar to a proposed "VIA pc-1 initiative" reference design from 2005.  The integrated platform will have a Serial ATA hard drive, 6 USB's and 100Mbps LAN. 

The 90nm Esther core CPU itself is energy efficient, consuming only 20 watts of power. It's also quiet and environmentally friendly, being the worlds first carbon free processor.

Looks like an interesting concept, if the price is right, unfortunately it hasn't been disclosed yet. For more info visit VIA's homepage here.
