Via debuts power conscious quad-core x86 chip

VIA logoVia has debuted a power conscious 40nm quad-core x86 processor targeted at the mainstream PC and notebook market.

"With a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of only 27.5 watts, the 1.2+ GHz VIA QuadCore processor is 21% more energy efficient than the nearest competitor and ideal for a wide range of desktop PC, notebook, small form factor PC, all-in-one PC, and mini-server system design applications," said Via exec Epan Wu.

"[Due to] high definition multimedia content and increasingly demanding multithreaded applications, [we believe] a four core processor is the new baseline for today's mainstream PC user."
