Remote control for virtualized desktops

Computex VIA has got a PC system builder customer for its 750MHz C3 processor.

UK operation Evesham.com is going to put together a machine as soon as it gets samples of the chips. It plans to build a very low cost desktop and should be advertising it in the national press within a matter of weeks.

The 0.13 micron C3 - formerly known as Ezra - was officially launched at the Computex tradeshow in Taiwan. It's the first CPU to go into volume production using the 0.13 micron process. The C3 is debuting at speeds up to 800MHz.

VIA presenter CJ Holthaus said the 0.13 micron process would allow the C3 to "reach lower voltages and higher speeds.

"I believe it will scale up to 1GHz," he said.

VIA also introduced a mobile C3 which is available at speeds from 600MHz to 800MHz. It's aimed at the notebook and sub notebook market. ®
