    Nice write-up, but in the future could you post Google translated page links or something? All of us speak/read at least some English here, but other languages . . .

    Is like Nostaseron's data which are extremely useful, but it needs advanced knowledge to understand.

    So VIA finally managed to catch AMD up. And I see that their new uARCH after this one at 16 nm will be a even a more huge revamp than Bulldozer to Zen.

    What I'd like to see, is a gaming benchmark comparison where the VIA CPU has it's CPUID changed. Curious to see which games are subjected to compiler brand shenanigans.

    Console levels I see.

    BTW, there are Lenovo laptops with this processor around Asia. In how much time it will go overseas?

    Interesting and nice one(really!) but it came late. 2017(even if Q4) is a good launch time for the 16nm next gen.

    I've always found VIA CPUs intriguing, good to see they're still around. They were onto the whole "power efficiency" thing years and years before AMD and Intel, hopefully they have at least some resources to keep developing new chips. Also, I guess that company must be worth investing in for their X86 license alone.

    Yes new 8 small cores vs old 4 big cores with 8 threads (HyperThreading).

    Just check the clocks and the consumption.

    Even VIA is trying to catch up... and seeing that is catching up Core.... Sorry Atom, but now you are royally screwed up.

    Seems that @Tralalak forgot this...

    So the Octo Core is launched on 2016, so this year the 16 nm chip is supposed to land. We will finally see if they managed to catch up Nehalem. Atom is near on that performance.

    What's the TDP and/or max power consumption on the 8c 2GHz part?

    This is interesting news. I remember back in the days of 2010-2011 while building PCs as an undergrad engineer, we'd debate the cheaper VIA CPU + Mobo combo against the Intel Core 2 Duo Options.... Great to see VIA are alive (in some form) and have some interesting x86 cores coming up.

    it's interesting that they still use FSB, actually, it should be technically possible to use that ZX100 chipset with a Core 2 CPU? it would be pretty funny to have PCIE 3.0 and so on with those old CPUs.

    when the first Via Nano was a thing I remember it getting some great results against Atom and there was some expectation that Via could compete with that, but it never materialized in terms of price and availability, a shame; their new products still look fairly interesting.
