The processor market is constantly being pushed forward by performance, with the MHz rating of each new chip used as the benchmark of its desirability. With Intel's latest Pentium IV, the market has reached new heights of hysteria. However, there still remains a distinct niche for budget performance. Consider your own computing needs.
A typical user hardly requires a couple of Gigahertz of power. This is why the C3 from Via is such a welcome addition to the processor market. Priced at an astonishingly low $50 for a 733MHz processor the C3 is the new benchmark for budget computing. The chip generates so little heat that it can actually operate without a fan.
The processor may be used in a notebook as the battery savings of the low power throughput are tangible.
ItÃ•s compatibility makes it very appealing to any small-to-medium sized business. Added to the low cost, reduced emissions and potential to increase its life span, is the flexibility of the device.
It is fully compatible with all existing Socket 370 motherboards, in both desktops and notebooks.
