Well, I am glad I didn’t wait for a dual core processor. I know there is an Atom one, but it is not meant for netbooks, and from what I have seen did not provide that big of a boost tto the processing speed in relation to increased power consumption.
“VIA’s Dual Core Nano Goes Into Production in 2010

According to VIA’s recently revealed processor roadmap, the company will begin mass producing dual-core Nano CPUs in June of 2010. The late entry would appear to give Intel a significant head start, as the chip maker has already launched its dual-core Atom 330 CPU. But unlike Intel’s chip, VIA’s dual-core Nano will zero in on both netbooks (notebooks) and nettops (desktops) instead of strictly nettops.
However, Intel might still beat VIA to the punch with Pineview, the company’s dual-core Atom part with an integrated graphics solution. That is, if Intel makes the new chip available for netbooks. If not, Intel would be leaving the door open for VIA to step in as the only one to offer a dual-core solution for the uber popular netbook sector. Moreover, despite Nano’s lack of penetration thus far, benchmarks typically show the chip outpacing Intel’s Atom, albeit while also consuming more power.
Meanwhile, it seems nobody knows exactly what AMD has planned. The chip maker previously announced it was skipping the netbook market, but at the same time would target mini-notebooks. Should the markets overlap, or if AMD has a competitive change of heart, it could make for an interesting three-way battle royal. “
Via was always a piece of carp fish. Its just me but they have no experience.
i know the atom dual core is availiable on itx boards as i was looking in to this a few weeks back with boards from intel and jetway. Was looking at this just for a home made itx nas project.
