VIA's VX900 netbook chipset gains more interest

Mainstream manufacturers to adopt it

Our friend Nicole of Netbooknews has learned today that VIA's next-gen VX900 netbook chipset will be more widely adopted than first thought, making its way into more mainstream netbook models from the likes of Samsung and Lenovo etc.


And what's also particularly nice to hear is that we should be seeing netbook models with this chipset on display by June with VIA in anticipation of picking up some design wins during Computex.


To reflect on a previous report of the VIA VX900 chipset, a video demonstration recorded by Sascha of Netbooknews a few weeks back at VIA's headquarters showed it to be capable of smooth 1080p playback (thanks to the inclusion of a Chromotion HD 2.0 GPU) with comparable battery life to Intel's Atom CPU, unlike AMD Congo based notebooks where battery life is a weak point.
