VIA announced details of its new Isaiah Architecture for x86 processors. The new architecture combines the latest advances in x86 processor technology including 64-bit superscalar speculative out-of-order microarchitecture, high-performance multimedia computation and a new virtual machine architecture.

VIA says the first generation of Isaiah processors will be pin-compatible with the VIA C7 processor family. The first parts produced will use 65nm technology in the production process. The Isaiah architecture was designed by VIA owned Centaur Technology Inc.

"Today is an exciting day for everyone at Centaur," commented Glenn Henry, President, Centaur Technology Inc. "With a team of less than one hundred first-class engineers, we have created from scratch the world's most power-efficient x86 processor architecture with state of the art features, outstanding performance, and flexible scalability for the future."
