    We got a preview last November. This is a press announcement with an official marketing name.

    Webpage...
    => http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/processors/nanoX2/

    One of many articles on the web mentioning it...
    => http://www.techpowerup.com/137673/VIA-Announces-VIA-Nano-X2-Dual-Core-Processor.html

    ...VIA's dual-core on the 40nm process.

    Glad to see Intel's Atom is getting some company from AMD and VIA this year. :)

    Yep... still waiting... have been forever... including their new sexy vn1000 chipset.

    I think it'd be pimp to get the quickest DC Nano and throw it in a board sporting the vn1000 decked out with dual channel ddr2-800/ddr3-1066 (either will saturate the bus - so i spose ddr3 is cheaper) - the chipset supports up to 16gb of ram... then those chrome gtx cards which is a subsidary of via - their quickest card competes with 9600 geforce cards. It'd make for a pretty impressive all-via box :D :thumbup:

    Of course nano/atom systems feel a lot faster when their slowest subsystem (storage) is a screaming fast ssd. Maybe one of those ocz raid proprietary beasts doing 700+/700+ would be sufficient. Lol

    still waiting...

    Hopefully we see some products hit the retail chain as they tend to have these great processors yet they can't get enough support from OEM's over AMD or Intel offerings.

    40nm? and its called the nano? Arent there consumer cpu's using half or less the nm of this (<20nm?)

    Seems ironic :p

    No, 32nm is the smallest node at the moment (Intel). 40nm is TSMC's smallest process available, and will be for a large chunk of this yr before moving straight to 28nm.

    probably thinking of NAND flash (20nm) :)

    VIA touts lowest-power dual-core CPU, but keeps numbers a secret
    => http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/News/Via-Eden-X2/

    They're just "huffing and puffing" about their fanless version called the Eden X2. They don't provide numbers to back their statements. :rolleyes:
