    This will be the best 65Bit cpu ever.

    I haven’t really been keeping up with computing hardware but… Isn’t this more of a new rival for Intel’s upcoming “Pine Trail”? AMD’s Nano chip are already in netbooks after all.

  • wonderland

    Maybe a ULV Rival !!! Atom sucks nano 3000

  • http://www.ggtech.co.nr KuyaChe

    to MM: yeah agreed this a notch better than 64bit (rofl sarcasm)

    to Xcomp: VIA owns Nano, AMD has Neo chips which still consumes more power and average performance compared to Intel Atom.

    and no this cant compete with Intel CULV’s.
    this is just targeted to low end portable computing (netbooks mobiles and such), space saver enthusiast (eg car pc’s etc) and home appliance markets. CULV’s are designed for people on the go who need more power and portability and are way expensive.

    Ah… I always thought it was AMD who owned those chips but this is good. Now all future netbooks can play 1080p and output them to modern TVs. Have to wonder about the cost though.
