    VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the VIA Nano E-Series processor, bringing native 64-bit software support, virtualization capabilities and extended longevity support to embedded markets.

    The move to 64-bit software architecture is an essential transition for the future of the embedded industry. Forthcoming operating systems such as Windows Embedded Standard 7 will be able to leverage a 64-bit software eco system that provides up to double the amount of data a CPU can process per clock cycle. This translates in to greater ease in manipulating large data sets and an overall performance boost compared to non-native 64-bit architectures.

    "VIA Nano E-Series processors have been designed to facilitate the shift towards new technologies that will shape the embedded industry for years to come," said Daniel Wu, Vice President, VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. "The VIA Nano E-Series will mean that technologies such as 64-bit computing and virtual software deployment will become the norm, not the exception for tomorrow’s embedded system developers."

    The VIA Nano E-Series also supports VIA VT virtualization technology, allowing legacy software and applications to be used in virtual scenarios without impacting on performance. And as with all VIA processors, the VIA PadLock Security Engine offers hardware based data encryption standards that meet widely accepted international standards.

    Visitors to the VIA Technologies booth at ESC Silicon Valley 2010 will be able to see the VIA Nano E-Series in action. Join VIA at Embedded System Conference 2010, April 27 – 29, San Jose, McEnery Convention Center, Booth No.1238.

    VIA Nano E-Series Highlights
    Available at speeds from 800MHz to 1.8GHz, VIA Nano E-Series processors have guaranteed product longevity of seven years and are built on the successful 64-bit, superscalar architecture that powers the VIA Nano 3000 Series and 2000 Series processors.

    via is often usde in low end stuff and that's beacause they look good on paper but in reality the suck for their driver and i avoid them wherever i can.

    most of my via cpu's are slower than any comparable for clock performance and they are not very low power compared to Intel/AMD low power CPU/Northbridges....

    AND even if they build Frankensteins they don't support it, as an exaple:
    VIA PADLOCK which supports AES and other encryptions inside the cpu, but it isn't used any where because of lack of drivers!!!!:banghead:

    My good old Via Epia could have decoded most Video/Audio Streams in hardware at no performance costs but guess what? no driver support ever.....

    via get your drivers, at least working :wtf:
     
    Completely Bonkers says thanks.

    I've got a VIA chipset in a "Frankenstein" mobo and the drivers aren't an issue...also had a VIA chipset when i had a Pentium 3 and there were no problems at all...maybe it's only the cpus
