VIA Technologies has added a new product to its ARM based portfolio – the low power WM8880 dual core chipset tailored for low-end smartphones and tablets.
In June, VIA claimed that its APC (Android PC), a neo-ITX motherboard compatible with most ITX/ATX cases based on an ARM SoC and PC-like interfaces, was a sell-out success thanks to its $49 price-tag. The company today deleased all the software and documentation needed by developers and geeks to get started with the kit.
VIA announced the VAB-800, a motherboard in the pic-ITX form-factor (10 cm x 7.2 cm, ATX/ITX compatible), driven by an ARM-based SoC. The company claims the SoC powering the board is capable of 1080p video playback, drawing less than 5W power. It features most common PC interfaces.
Google's Android OS has so far ended up in just about every device imaginable, but apparently one market has so far been ignored, the humble desktop. Taiwanese VIA Technologies spotted this omission though and has developed the APC – or Android PC – which actually is more of a motherboard than a complete solution.
The ultra compact fanless PC market has just seen the addition of a new entry from VIA sporting the company's tiny EPIA-P900 Pico-ITX board.
All the way back in May of last year, VIA announced its first quad core CPU, simply named QuadCore which was known as the L4700. Now the company has announced its first mini-ITX motherboards based on its QuadCore processor, albeit this time we’re talking about an E-series – or embedded series – processor on the
VIA has teamed up with a company called Tensilica to license its Xtensa dataplane processors – or DPUs as the company calls them – to create its own SSD controller. Tensilica is a company that develops IP for customizable RISC cores – much like an FPGA in some ways – as well as a wide
VIA Labs Inc., a subsidiary of VIA Technologies just announced a new way to accelerate the USB 2.0 devices using "USB2Expressway Dedicated Bandwidth Technology" feature.
VIA Technologies on Friday released the VIA VE-900 Mini-ITX, a Mini-ITX Mainboard that the company says provides an ideal platform for DIY enthusiasts keen on building their own Mini-ITX home desktop and media center PCs.
Believe us when we say that this is one of the most epic reviews we've ever put together. Not because it was the hardest roundup we've ever done, but it's by far the most time consuming one and it doesn't even have anything to do with the benchmarks we ran. We thought it'd be a
This one has been a long time coming, but VLI (VIA Labs Inc.) has finally gained the much needed certification from the USB-IF for its VL800 and VL801 USB 3.0 host controllers. The good news for consumers are that finally you can buy any USB 3.0 host controller and know that it has received
VLI's NAND Flash controller has been long time coming and the company has finally announced the VL751 today. It's an affordable single-chip NAND Flash controller for USB 3.0 Flash drives. Not only should it allow for more affordable USB 3.0 Flash drives, but we should also see improved performance compared to many solutions currently in
Now here's an interesting turn of events, HTC has bought S3 Graphics, from VIA. This has a lot of interesting implications, least not for VIA which might be standing without a graphics partner for its future chipsets. That said, considering that HTC and VIA has common owners; this isn't a very likely outcome.
VIA Labs Inc. or VLI had a few new USB 3.0 solutions to show off as well at Computex, some rather interesting solutions and some other ones that have a lot more practical usage. VLI has as yet to pass USB-IF certification for its host controllers, but is expecting to do so later this month,
Good old VIA Technologies Inc. While most older hardware enthusiasts will probably have some memories of the company, the same usually cannot be said of the younger generation of this particular group of people, many of whom are probably not even aware of the fact that there exists a third developer of x86 chips besides
We'll take these numbers with a large helping of salt, but some VIA produced benchmark figures of its new QuadCore processor have appeared on a Japanese website. We're not sure why these numbers didn't show up until now, as we haven't seen them posted elsewhere. VIA put it's 1.2GHz+ CPU up against AMD's 1.6GHz E-350
It's sometimes easy to forget that there are three x86 CPU makers, as VIA, or rather should we say Centaur has such a small share of the market that no-one really ever thinks of them these days. The company has now announced a new model simply named the VIA QuadCore and as of right now
VIA Technologies, VIA’s subsidiary, is preparing to release the VL750 SuperSpeed USB to NAND Flash controller.
After years of trailing behind the competition, Taiwan-based VIA Technologies has finally announced its plans to roll out dual-core and quad-core variants of its VIA Nano processors. Will this move serve as the push needed to help VIA regain its competitiveness in the PC processor market dominated by Intel and AMD? Read on to find
Looking for an Intel Atom alternative? This might very well be your answer. ASRock has launched the PV530 micro-ATX motherboard, designed to offer a compelling yet energy-efficient computer experience – low cost does not necessarily mean low performance. Using an integrated VIA PV530 central processing unit (CPU) and VIA VX900 IGP chipset, it is targeted
