VIA Readying New 64-bit x86 Processor to Take on Intel Bay Trail and AMD Kabini

Only the third active licencee of Intel's x86 machine architecture, VIA Technology, is readying its first x86 processor in years, codenamed Isaiah II. This chip is based on a brand new 64-bit x86 core design by VIA and the engineering team it acquired from Centaur Technology, another erstwhile x86 licencee, and features modern instruction sets such as AVX 2.0. VIA began sampling a quad-core processor based on Isaiah II, which was put to live test by the company, at its InfoComm 2014 booth. It was compared to Intel's "Bay Trail" Atom and AMD's "Kabini" Athlon chips. It turns out that the Isaiah II is pretty good, if it comes out soon enough.

The Isaiah II based quad-core chip, featuring 2.00 GHz clock speeds, and 2 MB of L2 cache, was put through SANDRA. The BGA chip was running on a VIA-made motherboard, with its own VIA VX11H chipset. It was compared to AMD Athlon 5350 (quad-core "Jaguar" with 2.05 GHz clocks), and Intel Atom Z3770 (quad-core "Silvermont" with 2.40 GHz clocks). The results are tabulated below. At 2.00 GHz, armed with the latest multimedia and cryptography instruction-sets, VIA's chip is faster than Intel's in most tests, despite lower clocks. It trades blows - and wins - against AMD's chip, in most tests. VIA is expected to launch the first chips based on Isaiah II in late-August, 2014. VIA is hedging its bets with efficient compact PCs, kiosks, and digital signage, with its new chip.

Gigabyte Unveils GA-9SISL Micro-Server Board

Gigabyte launched the GA-9SISL, a unique micro-server board in the mini-ITX form-factor. At its center is an Intel Atom C2750 "Avoton" processor. This chip embeds an eight-core "Silvermont" x86-64 CPU clocked at 2.40 GHz, with 2.60 GHz Turbo Boost, a dual-channel memory controller that supports up to 64 GB of memory, 4 MB of L2 cache, and a 6-port SATA AHCI/RAID controller with two 6 Gb/s and four 3 Gb/s ports. Its TDP is rated at just 20W, and so a tiny fan-heatsink is deployed to handle it.

The GA-9SISL from Gigabyte draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors. The Atom C2750 SoC is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 memory. Its lone expansion slot is a PCI-Express 2.0 x16. Storage connectivity includes four SATA 3 Gb/s and two SATA 6 Gb/s ports. An ASPEED AST2400 chip provides remote management capabilities, and its integrated video, over a D-Sub connector. An Intel N354 network controller offers four 1000 Mbit Ethernet connectors, while a 5th one is wired to the management chip. Gigabyte didn't announce pricing, but given that the SoC itself is priced at US $170 a piece in 1000-unit quantities, home NAS builders may not get excited.
