    VIA's New Centaur Designed Isaiah CPU Architecture

    Most of us have all heard of AMD and Intel processors for our desktops and laptops. Surprisingly enough Centaur Technology has managed to rise from the ashes of Cyrix/WinChip. (Remember them?) Their low power processors are found at the heart of most ~$200 Linux desktops. The new Isaiah architecture expands upon their current C7 processor's low power usage but greatly improves the performance. It's even socket compatible with their previous motherboards.

    It looks like VIA plans to pit this low cost and power processor against Intel's Penryn in budget desktops and Silverthorne/Diamondville in UMPC markets.

    Maybe now the Everex gpc can be updated now. These seem like they would be good for it.

    Only heard news about Cyrix here and there in past 10 years. would really like to see a 3rd competitor.
