The Inq writes VIA has introduced the VIA VX700 chipset for Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs):
According to Via, the VX700 will allow a reduction of UPMC sizes by 40 per cent.

The chipset is coupled with Via's C7-M and gives longer battery life - the chipset itself measures 35mm by 35mm.

Via will release the chipset to mass production this quarter. It includes Unichrome graphics, DDR-2 support, Via "Vinyl" audio, support for S-ATA II and P-ATA hard drives, six USB 2.0 ports and four PCI slots.
