Intel Atom shortages breathe more life into VIA C7-M

Via_c7m_logoDigiTimes indicates that the low-powered Intel Atom CPU shortages will give none other than VIA a nice boost. Several PC makers are expected to go with the VIA C7-M CPU in lieu of the Atom for their low cost computers. The Atom isn’t due out until next month and there’s already either enough interest or media spin (or both) to indicate high demand and low supply of the chipset. While the CPU wars rage on, I’m actually waiting for one single model of a notebook that can be had with a comparable VIA C7-M, VIA Isaiah or Intel Atom… I’d consider buying all three for an all night benchmark party. If that works out, you’re all invited for some live streaming!
