VIA Eden ESP, Eden-N and Eden processors
Introduction: December 2001 (Eden ESP), October 2003 (Eden-N), January 2006 (Eden)
The VIA Cyrix III/C3 was a family of x86 central processing units for Socket 370 personal computers, designed by Centaur Technology and sold by VIA Technologies. The different CPU cores were built following the design methodology of Centaur Technology.
The VIA Cyrix III was later renamed VIA C3, as it was not built upon Cyrix technology at all.
The Eden ESP, Eden-N and Eden cores
VIA Eden was a name of a variant of VIA's C3/C7 processors, designed to be used in embedded devices. They had smaller package sizes, lower power consumption, and somewhat lower computing performance than their C equivalents, due to reduced clock rates. They were often used in EPIA mini-ITX and nano-ITX motherboards, which had letter "E" at the end of their model name.
The Eden ULV 500MHz was the first variant to achieve a 1W TDP.
