VIA's "Isaiah" CPU will be 64-bit
October 06, 2004
Not to be outdone by rivals AMD and Intel, VIA is taking the 64-bit plunge.
Their next generation processor after the C7 ("Esther") will combine an advanced 64-bit architecture with VIA's trademark low power design, and continues the Biblical theme with the code name of "Isaiah".
Isaiah will include a high-speed FSB, an "industry leading" Floating Point Unit that can perform floating-point additions and multiplies in two clock cycles, an increased cache size and out-of order, superscalar execution.
VIA aims to "raise the performance bar" for high definition computing, promising a processor that will simultaneously be able to decrypt a digital media stream while outputting its content in ultra-high resolution.
Expect more details down the road on this one - the expected launch date is the first half of 2006.
