HP takes shine to VIA's Nano CPU?

'Order placed' for ultra low-power chip

SANS - Survey on application security programs

HP looks set to adopt VIA's ultra low-power Nano processor, but as yet it's not known what the PC giant will use the CPU for.

The claim that HP has placed an order for an unknown quantity of Nanos comes from industry moles cited by DigiTimes.

If true, it's good news for VIA. How good depends on what HP plans to do with the processors when it gets them.

HP's 2133 Mini-Note: now with C7-M inside... soon Nano?

VIA wants Nano to be seen as an alternative to Intel's very low-power Core 2 CPU, appearing in full-feature slimline notebooks, as opposed to a rival for Intel's Atom processor in the Small, Cheap Computers market.

It reckons its C7-M is more than sufficient for netbooks. And, indeed, HP is already using the C7-M in its 2133 Mini-Note tiny laptop.

If HP uses Nano in top-of-the-line kit, then VIA's new chip will be up there alongside Intel's Centrino and AMD's Turion Ultra. But if HP uses Nano simply to supersede the C7-M in its netbook range, then VIA's left exactly where it is now, trying to convince World+Dog that the chip really is more than a niche product for low cost, low performance little PCs.
