..and you just know folks are already thinking evil thoughts about overclocking the silly thing. Via's new CPU is their first, and it's based on the "Cayenne" core Via acquired when they picked up Cyrix from NatSemi. News.com's story has a number of details, including this:
Code-named Joshua, the processor will run at clock speeds of 433 MHz, 466 MHz and 500 MHz. More important, it will fit into the same circuit boards as Intel's Celeron processor, making the chip the first Celeron clone.Here's hoping Cyrix has found a suitable home at Via. Then again, I thought Nat'l Semi was a great bet.
A new generation of chips will follow in the third quarter, company executives said at the Comdex trade show here today.
