    Via is well known for low power CPUs, so it comes as no big surprise that the company will be offering a new Eden processor with a power consumtion of a mere Watt. The new CPU adopts the typical VIA V4 bus and 21mm × 21mm nanoBGA2 packaging as other Eden models, but sets itself apart offering a 500MHz core frequency at a power consumption of only 1W. It is meant for network applicances or embedded boards.

    Wow, a single watt. That's impressive.

    if i do my math right and please correct me if im wrong
    this all possible if not already been testing
    this is if they keep it at this rate

    i dont mean the equal symbol literally, i dont know the key for equivlent mathmatical symbol

    single core-
    500mhz=1w
    750mhz=1.5w
    1ghz=2w
    1.5ghz=2.5w
    2ghz=3w
    2.5ghz=3.5w
    3ghz=4w
    3.5ghz=4.5w
    4ghz=5w
    4.5ghz=5.5w
    5ghz=6w
    5.5ghz=6.5w
    6ghz=7w
    6.5ghz=7.5w
    7ghz=8w

    dual core-
    or
    even
    quad core

    again just a hypothetical situation if the 500mhz uses 1w

    would be badass to see like a quad core cpu with each core rated at 7ghz only using 32w, that would be crazy but will also tie in with the explaination in sci-fi movies about their computers being smaller than small or maybe a technological advancment whoo hoo

    Well, the little math ins't that good really....

    Watts Clock
    1 - 500
    x - 7000

    x = 14 Watts
    x = 07 Watts x 4 (cores at 3,5 ghz ) = 28Watts not bad..... It would be so great if things just worked that linear way....
    But I think we will get there sometime (less than a 5 years maybe ?)

    Sweet, wonder if it even needs a heat sink.

    You wouldn't really want a heatsink in your router:p

    Interesting point. For an embedded system, 2x 500Mhz (ie dual core) is probably preferred to 1 x 1Mhz.

    Will require a heat sink. Passive.

    Wow, cell phones can definately use this proc for a much needed boost. Kudos Via.
