VIA planning dual-core Isaiah

Will compete with dual-core Atom


It seems like VIA isn't going to have one, but will have two new processors this year, as the company is planning a dual-core version of its upcoming Isaiah/CN processor, according to Cnet. There's very little information about this new dual-core CPU, but at least it has been acknowledged to be in development by Glenn Henry at VIA.

As Intel's first generation Atom processor will be single core, it looks like VIA will have a fighting chance, especially as they might even have come up with a superior product this time around, although it's way too early to make such a statement.

However, VIA is going to have work quickly to get its dual-core part ready, as Intel is planning the dual-core Atom for release later this year. VIA also needs a more powerful chipset to go with the new processors, as the current generation chipset from VIA is far from cutting edge, although the Atom isn't exactly using the latest chipset technology from Intel.

2008 is shaping up to be a very interesting year in the low-cost PC market if nothing else, and hopefully VIA can give Intel a run for its money in this segment, as competition is never a bad thing; at least not as long as it's on equal terms.
