Forgotten processor manufacturer Via has announced the C7 "Esther" processor designed for mobile devices.  Via hopes the C7 will bridge the gap between their earlier offerings and the Pentium M while offering OEMs a cheaper alternative to the Pentium M.  The C7 sports a proprietary front-side bus that is a 400 MHz bus but hopes to scale it in the future to 800 MHz.  Via claims the C7 offers a 50 percent increase in bandwidth compared to Intel’s Pentium M processor.
