VIA Dual Core Nano and VN1000 chipset get tested

Posted on Monday, November 15 2010 @ 21:31:13 CET by

AnandTech had the opportunity to preview VIA's upcoming Dual Core Nano and VN1000 chipset, you can check it out over here. The site concludes the dual-core Nano platforms offers better CPU and graphics performance than Intel's Atom, but power consumption and price are still a question mark.
While the dual core Nano improves competitiveness with Intel’s Atom, it’s the VN1000 that’s a huge step forward. These days everyone is talking about graphics and VIA is no exception. The VN1000 integrates S3’s Chrome 520, a brand new DirectX 10 GPU. VIA was light on architectural details other than to state that it has 32 stream processors and 4 texture sampling units. The VN1000 die is nearly as big as the CPU at 100mm^2 on a 65nm process. VIA claims that the 520’s performance is easily good enough for mainstream graphics.
