Samsung NC20 Netbook to Be Powered by a Via Processor

The upcoming Samsung NC20 netbook will use a Via Nano processor. This is not “news” for say, but Via made it official earlier tonight. The Samsung NC10 is considered today as one of the best Netbook there is on the market, but the NC20 will take it one step further with a larger display (12″) – which also means a more comfortable keyboard… The Via Nano processor will be clocked at 1.3Ghz, which is slightly less than Intel’s Atom, but the computer will have a Chrome DX9 GPU that should help with basic 3D apps and video playback. The NC2 will run Windows XP. Specifications in the full post.
