The Register heeft een artikel gepost met daarin de procesor roadmap van VIA. Hieronder de info over de Samuel, Ezra en Cyrix III CPU's:
According to a roadmap we have seen, Samuel/Samuel 2 uses a WinChip C5 core, comes in a Socket 370 format, has 128K of level one cache, zero to 64K of level two cache, and supports system buses of between 66-133MHz.
Speeds for Samuel/Samuel 2 will be 500MHz, 533MHz, 550MHz, 600MHz, 650MHz, 700MHz, 750MHz and 800MHz.
The up-and-coming Ezra is a different kettle of fish altogether, somewhat reminiscent of Australian creature the platypus.
According to the roadmap, Ezra will come in clock speeds of 750MHz, 800MHz, 850MHz, and 900MHz+. It will use the CX core, support Socket 370 and Socket 417, 128K of level one cache, 128K of level two cache, a 266MHz front side bus and SSE.
[...] Meanwhile, the Via Cyrix III, formerly called Joshua, is slated for release in June, but some questions remain over how viable it will be given that Intel with its Celeron and AMD with its Duron are involved in a seriously head-banging pricewar.
Unlike Samuel and Ezra, the Cyrix III uses the PR rating rather than a MHZ rating.
Thanks TgF voor de tip.
