While VIA isn't working on their Linux graphics support, they are continuing to design new hardware. For the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, VIA Technologies has just released their Nano X2 Dual-Core CPU.

The VIA Nano X2 features two x86 cores with support for x86_64 instructions, SSE4, VT CPU virtualization, PadLock hardware security, and is also pin-to-pin compatible with VIA's older Nano, C7, C7-M, and Eden processors.

The press release and other details on their newest CPU can be found from the VIA Press Room. This also comes right after they launched their first discrete graphics card.
