Via announces the C7- new mobile processor


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.
