VIA Nano® X2 Processor
VIA Nano X2 processors are the first truly optimized, low power dual-core processors. Combining two 64-bit ‘Isaiah’ cores in one die, VIA Nano X2 processors deliver industry leading performance-per-watt and improved multi-tasking ability, without consuming more power.
Targeting a range of PC products that include desktop, all-in-one and mobile notebook designs, VIA Nano X2 processors extend the reach of VIA's processor portfolio into multitasking and performance-oriented segments and offer end users an optimal, power-efficient computing experience.
VIA Nano X2 processors are built using the latest 40nm fabrication process and feature the advanced 64-bit, superscalar 'Isaiah' architecture that powers previous single-core VIA Nano processors. VIA Nano X2 processors leverage a multi-core architecture to offer up to twice the performance in multi-thread optimized applications, while staying within the same signature low-power envelope.
Featuring two out-of-order x86 cores, VIA Nano X2 processors come with native 64-bit software support, VT CPU virtualization technology, and VIA PadLock™ hardware security features. VIA Nano X2 processors are also pin-to-pin compatible with previous VIA Nano, VIA C7, VIA C7-M and VIA Eden processors, facilitating easy upgrades of existing designs.
