VIA delivers world’s most power-efficient x86 dual-core chip

updated 05:30 am EST, Fri March 4, 2011

Eden X2 optimized for fanless implementation

VIA Technologies has announced what it claims is the world's most power-efficient dual-core x86 processor. The Eden X2 chip is designed for fanless implementation, meaning that it will likely be find its way into tablets and other slim-line form factors. The chip is based on a 40nm manufacturing process and is natively 64-bit capable making it ideal for running new systems based on Windows Compact Embedded 7 Standard.

The chips are based on VIA's superscalar "Isaiah" architecture and offer twice the performance in multi-threaded applications. Despite the increase in performance, the new dual-core design remains within the same thermal envelope as the original single-core VIA design.

VIA has not yet revealed the specific TDP of the chip as yet, but is expected to provide more details on its formal launch at World Embedded conference this week.
