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. Source: Digitimes

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 ?)

Interesting point. For an embedded system, 2x 500Mhz (ie dual core) is probably preferred to 1 x 1Mhz. Will require a heat sink. Passive.
