1.3GHz+ with S3 Chrome 435 ULP


VIA managed to score an interesting design win with Chinese manufacturer Tongfong, and this time has announced a notebook in 13.3 inch, featuring VIA 64 bit 1.3GHz Nano U2250 CPU, VIA VX800 MSP chipset and a discrete graphics card called S3 Chrome 435 ULP.

The graphics card can take care of DirectX 10.1 and hardware H.264 and it also supports HDMI and VGA. We are sure it won't be the fastest graphics chip in the world, but its power consumption might be at a good level.

Tongfong S30A is a 1.4kg heavy, stylish notebook that also comes with a 2.5 inch SSD drive, 2GB of DDR2 memory and Windows Vista or Windows XP Home edition. It will ship with a six cell battery, but there will be an option to ship with three cell battery to shed some weight.

You can see Tongfong S30A in action here and we have to disappoint our western hemisphere readers as so far this is a product exclusive to China.
