VIA C7-M Processor Preview
VIA recently announced plans for another in the 'C' line of processors, this time dedicated to mobile use. The VIA C7-M is the mobile version of the C7 processor which was released in May of 2005. The VIA C7-M is slated to become available in November 2005 in speeds of 1.5GHz or 1.8GHz. During a recent briefing by the company, PCSTATS was shown the CPU in its A2 stepping. Possibly aiming to fill the market gap left by the apparent demise of Transmeta as a processor manufacturer, VIA has designed the C7-M with low power requirements and software security as the biggest areas of emphasis. The company is targeting the VIA C7-M at almost every segment of the laptop market, though it won't directly compete with the high-powered Intel Pentium M and AMD Turion processors in full-size laptops on the benchmark front at least, power efficiency is another story altogether.
