It is also compatible with all VIA media system processors and digital media chipsets including the latest VIA VX900 and VIA VN1000. Among its features are a “power efficient” out-of-order x86 architecture (though there was no TDP rating mention), full support for 64-bit operating systems, support for SSE4 instructions, VT CPU virtualization technology and VIA's proprietary PadLock hardware security features.
The company says Nano X2 samples are currently available for OEMs and motherboard vendors, with systems featuring the chips expected to arrive in Q1 2011. They don’t mention who is building those VIA-powered systems, though, and we’re curious given the hundreds of design wins that Intel and AMD are claiming with their new platforms.
