VIA Brings Eden Processors Up To 1GHz

VIA today announced two additions to its low-power Eden ESP processor family with the ESP8000 (800MHz) and ESP10000 (1GHz).

The Eden is a popular platform for low-power PC projects including home theater PCs, routers and specialized servers. According to VIA, the 1GHz ESP10000 consumes as little as 7W, and is silent due to its fanless cooling configuration.

The new Edens are based on VIA’s 130nm Nehemiah core which is the basis of its C3 desktop line and Antaur mobile processors. The ESP8000 and ESP10000 chips are priced at $85 and $100, respectively.
