Via Technologies is slowly making its way into more systems with its Nano processor line. Both Samsung and Lenovo have announced netbooks featuring the low-power chips, while Dell recently unveiled a new server product based around the Nano platform. Now we are hearing that Shuttle, known for its small form factor systems, has two Nano-based desktops coming as well as part of their Embedded Slim series.


The XS92 and XS92F are “geared at light PC users” and will feature the L-series and U-series Nano processors, respectively. The first of these chips offers clock speeds of up to 1.8GHz and 25W thermal peak power consumption, while the latter ranges in clock speed from 1GHz to 1.3GHz but consumes a mere 5W to 8W – which also eliminates the need for a fan. Unfortunately, no further details have been revealed other that they are expected to start shipping sometime in June. Full specs and pricing details should be available at Computex.
