We don't know many details but we do know it's pin compatible with existing socket 479 platforms.
In other words, it will be Pentium M compatible.
Some tier one motherboard manufacturers are going to support such a CPU and at least one Taiwanese company is already working on such a design.
We suspect it's going to be a very cool CPU - opposite from hot- and it won't consume much power.
We will expect to see this little baby at VIA technology show that will take place side by side with Computex. µ
