Via Technologies Pushes Low-Power Notebook Processor
Via Technologies is spreading the message that Intel isn't the only PC processor maker with low power on the brain.
The Taiwanese chip maker, best known for its chip sets, is anticipating the rollout of its new C7-M, a mobile version of its C7 processor, in notebooks as soon as next month. ADVERTISEMENT
Via Technologies Inc., whose chips are most often used in low-priced desktops and notebooks in the United States, is paying special attention to notebook platforms this time around so as to take on Intel Corp.
Aside from offering up the new processor, which Via announced last June, it's also preparing an accompanying bundle of chips, code-named Hannah, which it designed to add features to notebooks and rival Intel's Centrino bundle.
Centrino notebooks must incorporate Intel's Pentium M, its mobile chip set and an Intel Wi-Fi module.
Via's Hannah, which will arrive in the first half of 2006, will do the same, but add extras, a company executive said.
