    Just to show the world VIA isn't dead on the processor front. :)

    Maybe this one will finally match a PIII in a clock for clock comparison.

    They say "first quarter of 2008"...But knowing VIA, I'll give them a year after that. ;)

    twice as fast as the old architecture is still like about 16 times slower then a Pentium III :lol: ... i kid i kid, its not that bad. Probably still no competition for a P3 though.

    VIA were never dead on the processor front.

    I take it this will be for one of their own board/socket designs then?

    I'd like to see another manufacturer back in the game using one or both of the current top sockets.
