"Its tiny size makes it an easy addition to any home or small office and it packs an impressive amount of power for backup, storage, and other basic server functions. Add some RAM, hard drives, and an operating system, and you'll have a server that is customizable for your environment without spending an excessive amount of cash."

TechwareLabs reviews the VIA ARTiGO barebone system for its server capabilities and determines whether or not the extra work adds up to the extra saved bucks.

VIA caused quite a stir a few months ago when the company first revealed initial details regarding their low-power Nano processor. At the time, the product was referred to by its internal codename of Isaiah and the president of the design center that was tasked with making the processor was decidedly outspoken, which made for some exciting reporting. When news of the Isaiah core first broke, we hopped on the line with Glenn Henry, VIA's Centaur design center president, and got many questions answered regarding the processor's architecture, features, expected performance, and the company's plans for the CPU. We also covered the official announcement of the VIA Nano processor and detailed the exact models that would be available at launch. One thing we hadn't been able to do, however, was a direct performance comparison of the VIA Nano processor versus Intel's recently released Atom, which is target at the same market segment. Thankfully, we were recently given the opportunity to take a VIA Nano reference platform for a spin to see what it could do and will be presenting our results for you here today.

On the 29th of May 2008 VIA announced the Nano CPU, a processor built from Isaiah architecture. Building on the market-leading energy efficiency of their existing VIA C7 processor family, the VIA Nano processor family offers as much as four times the performance within the same power range to extend VIA's performance per watt leadership, while identical pin compatibility with VIA C7 processors will ensure a smooth transition for OEMs and motherboard vendors, and provides them with an easy upgrade path for current system or board designs.

VIA made quite a splash early this year when they announced the Isaiah CPU architecture, which was developed at their Centaur design center. At the time of the announcement, we spoke with VIA's Centaur design center president, Glenn Henry, to get a deeper insight into what VIA had in store with Isaiah, but we weren't given many hard details regarding final clock speeds and specifications, performance, branding, or availability.

The EPIA series from VIA has really come a long way since its initial inception years ago. When the series was first released, it was a unique formfactor. The problem is that it was slow and the expandability was not there. Fast forward a few years and the later designs are nothing like what it was. You get speed and expandability in a great size. If Windows is your thing, this board is Vista certified.

HEXUS gives you the lowdown on VIA's tiny, tiny Pico-ITX motherboard. Is small really beautiful?

Our first look at the EPIA boards really opened our eyes; while others were criticizing the board for its lack of CPU power, EPIA was never intending to take the place of high-end CPUs. In fact, its aim is to make its way into the silent PC and HTPC market, and with the newest generation of features. Today's test candidate is VIA's newest EPIA kid on the block. For quite some time there has been criticism that no graphics card upgradability was offered, but today that changes thanks to the EPIA-SN.

The Epia EX is a very interesting motherboard: the onboard equipment is complete and allows building a small and cheap system. On board there are 2 S-ata and 1 P-ata, so it is possible to use this card as base for a file service system, considering also the presence of a PCI slot. The system we build for the test with this card was very silent, and generated a small amount of heat. The performance of a system built with this card will be suitable for a home pc, or for a little office, but we can't expect to use it for intense rendering or video gaming.

Trying to find words other than "consistently disappointing" for the EPIA EX 15000G is exceptionally difficult. After meeting with VIA during Computex and being told playback compatibility was all down to the codec and bit rate, we tested as many iterations of popular codecs and sizes as we could find to see exactly where it fits. If you watch exceptionally low bit rate or exclusively non-HD content and DVDs then yes, the EPIA will suffice, however forget any sort of h.264 action, which is fast becoming the codec of choice.

C7 adds VIA's new Step Ahead technology suite. To put it down, Step Ahead is a series of branch prediction instructions and software on the CPU to predict frequently accessed data to allow quicker access to certain programs on the system, this come in handy for the digital home and office environments where prediction is a lot easier than with gaming. The C7 also gets an increased pipeline, up from 10 stages on the C3 to a 16 stage pipeline - that is two stages more than the Pentium M series had from Intel. Lastly VIA's V4 bus may sound new, and in fact it is for VIA - it is the first time they have used this bus, however V4 is simply another name for the Intel FSB used on the Pentium 4's and Pentium-M CPU. Currently the C7 uses a 100MHz quad-pumped bus (or 400MHz QDR) which is the same as what the original Pentium 4's came out with - it does give the VIA CPU a lot more bandwidth to play with over its C3 counterpart.

VIA's back with a new Mini-ITX EPIA motherboard in the HEXUS.labs, but this one packs more of a punch than the previous models. It's got a new processor, fabricated by IBM and consuming less than 20W, plus it's got DDR2 RAM support.

VIA's EPIA EN15000 is pretty standard. It uses VIA's new C7 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, though a passively cooled 1.2 GHz model is also available. The new C7 is fabricated on IBM's 90nm SOI technology and uses VIA's new V4 bus clocked at 400 MHz. Though it has a fancy new name, VIA's V4 bus is essentially the same as the bus used on P4 processors. Additionally the processor has your usual SSE2, SSE3 multimedia instructions, a full speed Floating Point Unit, NX bit support, and enhanced hardware encryption acceleration algorithms...

Combining automated patch tracking and downloads with gaming news, reviews and demo downloading services, Grease Monkey strips down the essence of sites like FilePlanet and GameSpot and attempts to cram it into your system; hence the 'Grease.' Let's see just how well everything fits.

VIA has done a great job on making the transition to PCIe graphics and DDR2 memory as easy as possible for consumers. By launching chipsets that can offer AGP/PCIe and DDR1/DDR2 they allow the consumer to upgrade at will, which is an A+ in our book. No one likes being forced into buying an entirely new system with each and every advance in technology!
