    It'll be nice to have VIA back in the game, if only to give us good value low end and industrial x86 options.

    If they're planning to get the KX-5000 released in 2017, they'd better hurry up. There's a thread over on AnandTech which shows the KX-5000 as 2018-2019; that seems much more likely.

    From what I can see, none of these are socketed CPUs. That probably makes sense for their intended purpose (and it's what Via has always done - I don't think Via has ever had a socket of their own) but also makes them less attractive to the sort of people who use OCAU.

    A monumental comeback it would surely be.
