VIA: Changing to 45nm and dual core CPUs planned for 2009
Thanks to the growing market of low-cost Notebooks, the processor manufacturer VIA is on the upswing again and set some new goals for the next year.
In March 2008 VIA introduced its Isaiah architecture. (picture: VIA)
Digitimes reports, referring to sources within the company, that changing to 45 nanometer structure and the introduction of a dual core CPU are supposed to be done until the end of 2009.
There also is some additional information about VIA's recently introduced Isaish processor. The clock speed will be set to two GHz, the V4 bus speed lies between 800 and 1,333 MHz. L1-Cache is two times 64 KiByte and the L2-Cache is two times 1 MiByte. Furthermore the processor is, due to equal pin positions, compatible to its predecessor C7. The chip will be produced by Fujitsu in a 65 nanometer structure.
