Single-chip UMPC solution

VIA has announced a new single-chip chipset designed for UMPC systems. The new VX700 chipset is compatible with VIA’s C7-M processors. The single-chip VX700 manages to pack all north and south bridge features into a single 35x35mm chip package that makes it ideal for space conscious UMPC designs.

It features the UniChrome Pro II IGP graphics core with the Chromation Video Engine. The Chromation Video Engine features hardware acceleration for MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and WMV9 video formats. An integrated LVDS/DVI transmitter provides flexible display configurations with LCD’s, CRT and HDTV displays. DDR and DDR2 memory is supported by the VX700. SATA II, PATA, USB 2.0 and PCI connectivity is supported too. Support for high definition audio is also integrated.

Availability of the VX700 chipset is expected towards the end of Q3’06.

I liked his comments. I don't think comparing a product to a 500-600mhz PIII in power is a glowing recommendation. Every product needs a niche and I think he accurately described the one for this product.
