VIA’s upcoming Eden X2 processor is touted to be the lowest power dual-core processor in the industry, where it has been specially optimized for fanless implementation across a broad range of industrial and commercial embedded systems. Of course, if you want to lay your eyes on the VIA Eden X2, expect to be at the Embedded World 2011, Nuremberg, Germany as that is where it will debut.
The range of VIA Eden X2 processors will bring together VIA’s signature ‘Eden’ fanless design principles, and it will come in a highly optimized, power-efficient dual-core architecture. This translates to rock-solid stability for mission critical embedded systems that will not see any compromise on performance or features. Your peace of mind is further ensured With a component longevity guarantee of 7 years, now how about that? This will certainly raise the bar and then some for other component manufacturers.
Taking advantage of the latest 40nm manufacturing process, VIA Eden X2 processors will merge a couple of 64-bit, superscalar VIA Eden cores on one die, while delivering enhanced multi-tasking and superb multimedia performance without sipping up too much juice. After all, it is well noted that VIA Eden X2 processors are the most power-efficient processors on the market, and were specially designed to offer the ideal solution for fanless system design.
VIA Eden X2 processors will also deliver additional features which include VIA VT virtualization, which actually is a technology that enables legacy software and applications to be used in virtual scenarios without having any adverse impact on performance.
All VIA Eden X2 processors are natively 64-bit compatible, and this makes for an essential transition for the future of the embedded industry as 64-bit operating systems such as Windows Embedded Standard 7 will pave the way for vastly improved data throughput per clock cycle. You won’t expect it to hit the market anytime soon though, as VIA Eden X2 Processors are currently undergoing sampling at the moment.
