Via may have finally found a steady home for its Nano CPU. Dell is looking to make a new classification of server and wants to put the Via Nano under the hood.

 

The new servers should sell under the product name of XS11-VX8. They are not intended for high performance but for light server loads and should show up with a 1.3GHz Nano. No word on when they will hit the streets or other specs but pricing should be around $400.

Dell to put Via Nano in light duty servers

 

VIA got a break from the all-mighty silicon gods as the world's second-largest computer seller, Dell, has decided on using its Nano processors for a new series of servers. Before making it into Dell's offer, the Nano has found its way into the Samsung NC20, a 12-inch notebook. Dubbed XS11-VX8, the new Nano-powered machines are designed for light server workloads and put the emphasis on low power consumption, lower cooling requirements and compact size.
