VIA announces its Nano X2 CPU

Written by Slobodan Simic

Two Isaiah cores
It has been a subject of plenty of rumors so far, but today VIA finally annouced its dual-core Nano X2 CPU. Featuring two Isaiah cores, Nano X2 is made using 40nm manufacturing technology and is pin-compatible to platforms that were released for the original single-core Nano, as well as VIA C7, C7-M and VIA Eden processors.

VIA Nano X2 features SSE4 instructions, has native 64-bit support, VT CPU virtualization technology and VIA's proprietary PadLock hardware security features. Although it hasn't revealed any details, VIA was keen to point out that the new Nano X2 has advanced power and thermal management features.

VIA Nano X2 is currently available for OEMs and MB manufacturers, while the first products are expected in this quarter.

I do wish they would be more popular. At least 3-4% of the market, because they do seem to make some good CPUs for the market they aim for.

The first VIA Nano they produced was slightly faster than the Intel Atom so they're not some unknown budget solution for tablets and netbooks etc, everyone is familiar with Intel hence their larger marketshare, would be interesting to see how this chip compares to the fusion chips in CPU applications

Very nice looking chip, VIA is far old and experienced company, better based around with video mainstream when S3 savage rule the day, just disappointing, where are they now :sad:
100% agree with Blacky

At least they developed their own bus also :P
It was something like hypertransport gen 1 .
I still wonder why they never actually caught on , time to go on a test for it .

Go VIA!!

VIA's Nano is a wonderful CPU. Being able to build an OoO CPU that performs better than Atom while having the same or lower thermals is actually an amazing accomplishment for VIA considering that they have a budget of less than 1% of what Intel has.
