VIA Technologies making plans to launch its new processor named Isaiah in the first quarter of 2008 thus replacing after almost 4 full years its Esther processor architecture. This new architecture is scheduled to enter EVT (engineering validation test) stage in the fourth quarter of 2007. The Isaiah processor core will be manufactured using the newest 65nm process and features a 64-bit architecture, V4 Bus speed of 1333MHz, 1MB of L2 cache and will also support ECC (error checking and correction) memory and virtualization technology.

Well if the price is VERY LOW it may be good for cheap systems.

VIA aims at low power, not at performance.
right, but many people buy VIA processors for HTPC's, since they are quiet and don't require much power, but one would think that even a low power dual core would be great for an HTPC...

with the Ecc memory costs it would pretty much make any savings on purchasing the Cpu quite negligible

Read again, it says "also support". Plus, I believe the comment was about the cache, not the RAM since I see no mention of a memory controller in the CPU. Which means memory support is dependent on the chipset and not the CPU.

they had some decent chips back in the day. This looks like an awesome chip though...combining some of amd and intel in one...
