C7-M for OLPC Gen 1.5


OLPC
has announced that it is dropping AMD as its CPU partner for the XO-1 laptop, and it is turning to VIA.

The XO-1 Gen 1.5 refresh will be based on a VIA VIA C7-M processor and VIA chipset. It will ship with 1GB of DDR2, and 4GB of flash storage, with an option for 8GB.

The CPU will throttle automatically, and its clock ranges from 1GHz down to 400MHz. At the top clock, power consumption is 5W, while at 400MHz, it drops to 1.5W.

It will use the new, energy efficient VX855 chipset, which offers HD video and audio decoding.

The current screen will be retained, although OLPC says it's working with spin-off PixelQi to improve brightness and energy efficiency.
