It has been a subject of plenty of rumors so far, but today VIA finally annouced its dual-core Nano X2 CPU. Featuring two Isaiah cores, Nano X2 is made using 40nm manufacturing technology and is pin-compatible to platforms that were released for the original single-core Nano, as well as VIA C7, C7-M and VIA Eden processors.
VIA Nano X2 features SSE4 instructions, has native 64-bit support, VT CPU virtualization technology and VIA's proprietary PadLock hardware security features. Although it hasn't revealed any details, VIA was keen to point out that the new Nano X2 has advanced power and thermal management features.
VIA Nano X2 is currently available for OEMs and MB manufacturers, while the first products are expected in this quarter.
