Via Getting Ready to Combat the Atom



image Via is getting ready to start some competition with Intel by putting out their own very low powered Dual Core 3000 processor.  I didn’t see any specs on the speed, but below you can read what the Cnet News article is saying:

The dual-core version of the Via Nano 3000–due in late 2009 or 2010–may use a Fujitsu 45-nanometer or TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) 40-nanometer manufacturing process, according to HKEPC. The Intel Atom is based on 45-nanometer process technology.

The Via chip may also include SSE4 instruction support, HKEPC said. Generally, SSE4 (Streaming SIMD Extensions 4) instructions speed up multimedia applications.

    It sounds good, but until there are more Nano-equipped netbooks *available*, it’s still mainly talk.

    “VIA platform accounts for 10-15% of netbook shipments in 2008, says paper”…?

    P.S. AMD is missing, and seems to be going to miss more in a growing chunk of the market. Maybe she don’t have the resources to compete with Intel both in the HPC and low-end markets…?
