VIA dual-core Nano by 2010

Chip and computer hardware parts maker VIA unveiled its roadmap for future Nano chips at the Embedded Technology 2008 show in Japan held last week, according to a Wednesday report. The roadmap revealed VIA won't be releasing a dual-core Nano CPU for netbooks until an estimated date of June of 2010, leaving the market wide open for competitor Intel and its dual-core Atom CPU. The Taiwanese company also revealed it will release a Nano E-series chip in the spring of 2009, which will bump up the front system bus speeds from the current 800MHz to 1,333MHz and use a 65nm process.

The chip will be backwards compatible and fit onto the same mainboards as the older NanoBGA2 chips. Specifics on the dual-core Nano chip are scarce, but VIA did say it will use new technology and performance enhancements and support C7 and VIA Nano board designs and infrastructure. Samples of the dual-core Nano will begin shipping in December of 2009. [via Impress]
