VIA Nano Processor Family Launched

Via NanoVIA Technologies today announced that the new VIA Nano processor family, formerly known as “Isaiah”, is now available for OEMs and motherboard vendors, while systems featuring this CPU are expected to hit the market in Q3 2008.

“The VIA Nano processor family leverages Fujitsu’s advanced 65 nanometer process technology for enhanced power efficiency, and augments that with aggressive power and thermal management features within the compact 21mm x 21mm nanoBGA2 package for an idle power as low as 100mW (0.1W), extending the reach of power efficient green and silent PCs, thin and light notebooks and mini-notes around the world,” the press relase says.

The VIA Nano family includes the L-series processors for mainstream desktop and mobile PC systems and the ultra low voltage U-series for small form factor desktop and ultra mobile devices such as mini-notes. The chips have clock speeds ranging from 1GHz to 1.8GHz, 1MB of L2 cache, an 800MHz front side bus, and a maximal power consumption from 5 to 25 watts, depending on model.

Product and Model Name Clock Speed VIA V4 Bus Maximum Power (TDP Max)
VIA Nano L2100
1.8GHz 800MHz 25W
VIA Nano L2200
1.6GHz 800MHz 17W
VIA Nano U2400

VIA Nano U2500
1.2GHz 800MHz 6.8W
VIA Nano U2300

One thought on “VIA Nano Processor Family Launched”

  1. So it’s Fujitsu technology….

    Would love to see Fujitsu release an stylish, ultra-thin laptop powered by the 1.6 or 1.8 GHz version, running Linux, of course, using VIA’s OpenBook as a reference design. Preferable a lightweight XFCE Debian/Ubuntu based distro.

    If Fujitsu made one (in their Japan factory, no less) I’d buy one in a heartbeat.
