First details of VIA’s new VX900 chipset revealed

March 22, 2010 at 11:23 am

VIAVIA will shortly be announcing the new VIA VX900 chipset for netbooks. The multimedia chip will be easily capable of 1080p Blu-ray movie playback according to the company, with power consumption just barely higher than the previous VIA VX855 chip at around 2W.

The VX900 will be capable of H.264 hardware decoding. According to VIA’s own test results, the VX900 chipset can decode the 40MBps Blu-ray stream with a CPU load of less than 20 percent. The chipset will be combined with the VIA Nano U3000 range of processors.

Whilst Blu-ray playback isn’t likely in a cheap netbook, the company appear to be emphasising the growing trend of high-definition video downloaded from the internet. YouTube also supports the H.264 format that should enable good playback.


As you would expect, given the multimedia strengths of the chip, the VX900 will have HDMI output capability built into the chip. The VX900 also integrates support for PCI-E 2.0 as well as DDR3 memory support, allowing it to benefit from the increased bandwidth.

The VIA VX900 chipset uses an 80nm fabrication process, compared to the 65nm Nano processor parts. The company claims that they would move to a 45nm, but to do so would mean more expensive chips, which wouldn’t bode well for low-priced netbooks where margins are already low.

NetbookNews has a video of the new chipset in action that you can see below. It is not expected to land in the market until the second half of the year. Whether we will see many netbooks with this new chipset hit western shores remains unknown for now, although expect further news at Computex in June.

Update: The VIA VX900 is now official.

    VIA Netbooks a.k.a NetNotes are welcome. Its about time for Via and AMD netbooks join the netbook race. Intel seems to get headway quite easily.

    The most welcome improvement that this chipset offers is the PCIe connections. Although VIA announced plans to support PCIe in 2004 ( see, the most recent VIA chipsets have largely lacked that promised support.

    The VIA Nano is well-positioned to compete with Intel’s Atom processor, but consumers and OEMs need the option of using more powerful graphics (such as offered by ATI) or installing off-the-shelf mini-PCIe wireless cards, rather than being locked into VIA “solutions” which are not competitive. VIA has no hope of ever competing with ATI graphics, and USB wireless is inferior to PCIe wireless.

    The VIA VX900 chipset, which (according to the block diagram in the article) offers PCIe wireless, is taking a step in the right direction.

    Through conceptualizing the unconscious as highly outside of the conscious mind, featuring its own awareness, interests, responses,
    and learning. On another hand the individual that gets indulged into these activities is known as as the hypnotist and this takes
    place within the presence in the subject matter.

    The hypnotist, Don Mannarino, used what exactly is considered
    a “non-smoker” method.
