VIA Eden X2 Posted on 04/03/2011 at 01:13 by Guillaume
After announcing a dual core version of its low consumption x86 Nano processor, VIA has now presented the dual core version of the Eden. Known as the Eden X2, it has been designed for fanless embedded systems. Like the Nano X2, the Eden X2 supports 64-bit extensions to the instruction set and virtualisation.
The Eden X2 is engraved at 40nm by TSMC and uses the NanoBGA2 package (21mm x 21mm) previously introduced by VIA. Eden X2 availability has been given for the second quarter, though of course we’re still waiting for the Nano X2 solutions and they were originally announced for the first quarter 2011.
