VIA may have new processor to present

Most people think that there are two players on the x86 CPU market only – Intel and AMD but in reality there’s another company there too, although it is so small, it is hardly noticeable. The company we are talking about is VIA, which was more famous for its chipsets a decade ago. Now sources close to the company claim that VIA will soon present a new x86 processor with the event scheduled for fall 2014.

There is no extensive information on the upcoming processor except that it will have four cores at 2 GHz and 2 MB of L2 cache. The new chip will most likely come with the promising VIA Isaiah II architecture although this has not been confirmed. In addition to that preliminary benchmark results have also been shared. According to them the new chip is faster than the Intel Atom Z3770 Silvermont processor and comes close to the AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini/Jaguar chip.

Most likely the new VIA chip will see light of day in late August or sometime in September of this year. There’s no word on the pricing of the new processor.
