The newest processor from VIA, C7-M, is targeted to the mobile market and, according to VIA, competes directly with Pentium M (Centrino platform), as you can see in Figure 1. In this article we’ll explore this new baby from VIA.

In fact, the slide presented in Figure 1 is really interesting: the mobile market can be divided into five categories, and each CPU for this market is targeted for some categories. For example, Turion 64 is targeted to Transportable, Full Size and Thin & Light categories, while Pentium M and C7-M are targeted to Full Size, Thin & Light, Mini-Note and Ultraportable categories.

Transportable >= 15“  > 7.5 lbs (3.40 Kg) >= 1.8“ (47.58 mm)
Full Size >= 15“ 6.5-7.5 lbs (2.95-3.40 Kg) >= 1.3“ (33.02 mm)
Thin & Light  14-15“ 4.5-6 lbs (2-2.72 Kg)  1.1-1.2“ (27.94-30.48 mm)
Mini-Note  12“ 3-4.5 lbs (1.36-2 Kg)  > 1.0“ (25.4 mm)
Ultraportable 8-10“ < 3 lbs (1.36 Kg)  > 0.85“ (21.59 mm)

The size of C7-M is really impressive. Measuring only 0.83“ x 0.83“ x 0.073“ (21 mm x 21 mm x 1.85 mm) it is really hard to believe that it has all the features claimed by VIA.
