    VIA have finally launched their Isaiah CPU, which was first announced in 2004.

    Big improvements vs. the C7 come in the form of Out-of-Order execution, 64-bit extensions and SSE support while being electrically and thermally compatible with existing VIA platforms.

    Initial parts are 65nm and single core, with dual-core and 45nm products to follow in the future, Ars Technica has a write up here.

    Sounds like a nice update, especially with power, heat and price all staying in-line with the C7. I don't have much use for this kind of hardware, but I still love reading about it.
