VIA Nano® Processor

This product is available fully ROHS-compliant.

The first 64-bit, superscalar processors in VIA's x86 platform portfolio, VIA Nano processors have been specifically designed to revitalize traditional desktop, mobile and server markets, delivering truly optimized performance for the most demanding computing, entertainment and connectivity applications.

Building on the market-leading energy efficiency of the VIA C7® processor family, the VIA Nano processor family offers as much as four times the performance within the same power range to extend VIA's performance per watt leadership, while pin compatibility with VIA C7 processors will ensure a smooth transition for OEMs and motherboard vendors, providing them with an easy upgrade path for current system or board designs.

The VIA Nano processor family leverages advanced 65 nanometer process technology for the ideal blend of powerful performance and energy efficiency. Underscoring VIA's leadership in processor miniaturization, the VIA Nano processor comes with ultra compact dimensions, enabling a new generation of small form factor designs and new, smaller applications for the x86 platform.

  • Package size: Compact VIA NanoBGA2 package (21mm x 21mm)
  • Die size: 7.650mm x 8.275mm (63.3 square mm)
