VIA Eden X2 CPU is Most Power Efficient Dual-Core in the World
 
 

There are a lot of people out there that will give up raw performance in many instances for a device that has a longer battery life. How long the battery lasts in a gadget is directly related to how much power the CPU and other components suck down. Therefore the less power the hardware inside needs, the more run time you can get or the smaller the gadgets can be by using a smaller battery.

Via Technologies announced this week that it has a new processor called the Eden X2 that it claims to be the world's most power efficient dual-core processor. The X2 uses the Eden fanless design principals and has power-optimized dual core architecture. The part is designed for embedded systems and needs no fan making it quieter than processors that need active cooling

“Eden X2 shows how once again VIA is setting the pace when it comes to highly optimized, power-efficient processing,” said Daniel Wu, Vice President, VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Embedded developers will relish the opportunity to integrate a native 64-bit, dual-core processor in passively cooled, ultra stable systems.”

Via says that the X2 processor is 64-bit capable so it can run Windows 7 Embedded Standard and it is also compatible with Linux and Windows CE OS. The processor is made with the 40nm process and uses a Via NanoBGA2 socket. The measurements of the processor are 21mm x 21mm and the die side is 11mm x 6mm. Via also notes that the processors are pin compatible with all Via C7 and Nano E-series processors. Key specifications for the processor include a 7-year longevity guarantee, full virtualization support, advanced power and thermal management, AES hardware security, and an out-of-order x86 architecture. The processors are sampling now to customers and computer systems using the new processor are expected in Q2.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
