If you're a firm believer that big things come in small packages, then you're exactly the person VIA has in mind with its new ARTiGO A1150 sub-liter dual-core DIY PC kit for enthusiasts. VIA calls it the next generation of ultra-compact desktop computing; we call it a tiny PC with potential, at least on paper. At the heart of the system is VIA's Eden X2 dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz.
VIA showed off its Eden X2 dual-core processor today at the Embedded World 2011 exhibition. It's a x86 chip optimized for fanless implementations in embedded applications, both industrial and commercial. Despite the lack of active cooling, VIA backs the new chip with a 7-year longevity guarantee. Specs after the break.
