VIA pumping up the next-gen Nano CPU


The Intel Atom CPU is the golden processor of the netbook crowd but the next-gen VIA Nano might turn heads. The chip is set to drop some time in the middle of 2009 to help power the next round of netbooks. It should clock-in with 1333MHz FSB, 1MB of L2 cache, all built around a 64-bit infrastructure. Best of all, a 64-bit version is should drop at the end of ’09. Low power consumption, high speed, 64-bit. It could power one hell of a netbook.
