"VIA's trail-blazing VX900 will bring welcome relief to those pining for the best view of HD video online," said Richard Brown, Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "The VIA VX900 represents the most complete solution for HD digital content consumption on the market today."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1269402706.usr486.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>VIA is promising to demo the chipsets and boards at Computex to be used in netbooks and nettops. The included video is quite impressive.&nbsp; The chipset can handle 1080p video at 80Mbps without any stuttering at all, while never using more the 50% of the CPU.&nbsp; It could make for a really nice netbook.&nbsp; Unfortunately, there is not a ton more info available (such as price) so we will have to wait a while to see if this really can be a competitor to the current top of the line netbooks.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
