OLPC dumps AMD in favor of VIA

Posted on Monday, April 20 2009 @ 20:53:47 CEST by


The One Laptop Per Child project unveiled an updated version of its XO-1 laptop last week, the refresh uses a VIA C7-M processor instead of AMD's Geode processor. The new hardware will offer more power without increasing the power consumption.
The nonprofit will now use Via's C7-M processor instead of AMD's Geode processor to power the laptop, OLPC officials said in a post on the group's Web site. The upgrade is a previously undisclosed part of a laptop update that OLPC announced last year.

The Via processor will operate at clock speeds of between 400MHz and 1GHz, which OLPC considers an upgrade over the Geode LX processor in current XO laptops. The upgraded hardware should improve system performance while drawing similar amounts of power.
