The VIA Eden® processor is the smallest, most powerful and most secure fanless x86 processor on the market, with industry-leading power efficiency and heat dissipation, scalable up to 1.5GHz within a maximum power envelope of just 7.5W.

Has ultra low voltage (ULV) skus for ultra compact embedded and battery-driven devices.
VIA CoreFusion™ Processor Platform The VIA CoreFusion™ Processor Platform combines a proven VIA processor core with a feature-rich VIA North Bridge IGP core logic solution in a single, compact, low power package, enabling innovative embedded designs without compromise on system performance or reliability.
VIA C3® Processor The VIA C3® processor in the EBGA package is targeted specifically at low profile and quiet system designs, especially for emerging markets.

Due to their ultra low power consumption and reduced cooling requirements, VIA processors are well suited to a range of x86 based digital entertainment, productivity, mobile, networking and embedded applications that require reliable quiet operation from compact designs.

Additionally, VIA processors are available in various packages that include the low profile EBGA (Enhanced Ball Grid Array) and tiny nanoBGA that, combined with their reduced cooling requirement, help developers design smaller and lower profile digital media devices.

Further enhancing power efficiency, all current VIA processors feature the innovative VIA PowerSaver technology that dynamically adjusts processor clock speed depending on the performance demands of running applications. Recently certified for its outstanding energy efficiency, VIA PowerSaver is able to reduce computational energy usage by at least 40% when compared to fixed-frequency operation, which not only reduces power costs, but also greatly aids efforts to reduce the amount of CO2 that is emitted into our environment.


VIA processors are designed to operate with feature rich VIA chipsets and companion chips, providing complete platform solutions that help to reduce R&D costs and speed up time to market for new product designs. VIA Processor platforms employ an innovative Balanced Platform Performance design that spreads the workload over the whole platform helping to achieve increased performance of key digital entertainment, security and multitasking operations with reduced overall platform power consumption. For more information on VIA chipsets for VIA processors, check out the range of VIA C-Series and VIA V-Series chipsets on the VIA Chipset web page.

As part of the Balanced Platform Performance design, VIA has introduced a number of on-die security features in the VIA PadLock Security Engine¹, that are designed to carry out certain demanding operations within information security programs. The VIA PadLock Hardware Security Suite is available on all recent VIA processors.

¹ Elements of the VIA PadLock Security Engine have been evaluated by various leading data security specialists. View the evaluation reports here.
