Taiwan-based VIA Technologies is planning to adopt a 45nm process for the manufacture of its processors, and expects to launch dual-core CPUs by the end of 2009, according to sources at the company.

VIA has also revealed more details of its initial-launch Isaiah-based processor, which will feature a core frequency of 2GHz, a V4 Bus speed from 800-1333MHz, and two 64KB L1 cache and 1MB L2 cache pairs with 16-way associatively. The CPU will be manufactured by Fujitsu adopting a 65nm process. The CPU is pin compatible with the company's C7 processors.

VIA has forecast CPU shipments in 2008 to have an annual increase of around 20-30%, with shipments in the first half of 2008 to equal total shipments in 2007.

Even though you could say VIA are behind compared to the big boys..they seem to be doing well at current and are starting to become a little more noticed.

I wish VIA would push their chips for cheaper laptops a bit more.

Aaggggh. I hate brand name shoppers. A VIA powered laptop is more than powerful enough for my grandmother to check her e-mail.
