    Could Via be the new AMD?

    Of course, they still have a long way to go to become a full-fledged CPU manufacturer, but they seem to be going the right way...

    Would be nice to have another proper desktop CPU, to force intel to actually keep innovating instead of just riding infront of AMDs slow and jittery curve.

    Paired with an 3450 and a WD green HD and it sounds like you would have a very nice low power media center PC. I will be keeping my eye on these.

    I said the exact same thing over at Hexus except without the WD drive... i'd put a nice 8gb SSD in there for the OS too :)

    If i remember correctly wasnt Intel trying to force them out of the CPU market by only renewing their license to make chipsets for Intel CPU's (a lot of via's revenue comes from this).

    Im glad theyre still in the game and it would be great for a 3rd party to get into the CPU manufacturing industry. Will mean only good things for us the consumer.

    This chip does look really nice, and i really like the fact that theyve kept the same pin configuration so its compatible with the previous CPU's. If VIA did become a serious CPU player and they kept this mantra that they would keep pin configurations for longer, i can see them selling a lot of CPU's... especially where office PC's and the like are concerned as if makes them more future proof then the competition.

    I've said it before but:
    AMD + ATI
    Intel + Intel
    Via + Nvidia? It would be interesting to see what they could do for each other.

    if the perforamance figures are acurate that means that there fastest CPU's are now fast enough for me :O some very neat design work done by the centar people. I wonder what kind of price premium there will be over the C7?
