But he has no name yet

Today, many do not even know about VIA, although at one time it played a very significant role in the PC market.

But the company itself exists and even continues to create new products. In the near future, VIA and it's subsidiary Centaur intend to release a completely new processor for the corporate segment and workstations. They will demonstrate it at the ISC East 2019 exhibition, which will be held on November 20 and 21, but there are many details now.

But the most interesting is the core of NCore. This is a separate unit for working with AI, which is connected to each processor core with a special ring bus. Apparently, with this solution, the process of interaction between the CPU and NPU is completely different than in the serial chips currently available on the market.

From the rest, we know about 16 MB of L3 cache, support for DDR4-3200 memory, 44 PCIe 3.0 lines and a fully integrated set of system logic, which formally makes the VIA processor a single-chip system. Actually, the manufacturer himself calls his decision the world's first high-performance SoC architecture x86 with integrated AI coprocessor.


There are few details about NCore. VIA says this unit accelerates AI to 20 trillion operations per second with a throughput of 20 TB / s.
