Hitachi Ltd has selected VIA Technologies Inc.'s processors to power their new FLORA Se series desktop and mobile connected clients.

According to the press release, the FLORA Se330 BU1 desktop client featuring the VIA C7 processor is a little bigger than a B5 sheet of paper, 70 percent smaller than the previous generation and uses 70 percent less power. Its fanless design affords a quieter user experience, while the VIA CN700 digital media IGP chipset delivers extended connectivity required for smooth connected client computing.

The FLORA Se210 RK1 mobile client based on the VIA Eden processor combines the familiar form factor of a notebook with the solid data protection of connected client computing, releasing the mobile executive from the fear of critical information loss through device theft. Weighing just 1kg, the FLORA Se210 RK1 provides up to 5 hours of operation with the standard battery, and nearly 8 hours with the long-life battery, the company said.

"By taking full advantage of VIA's advanced processor power efficiency, we were able to achieve ground-breaking light weight and extended battery life for a notebook form factor," said Koichi Nakai, general manager of client operation, enterprise server division, Hitachi. "At the same time, the excellent thermal and physical profile enabled us to shrink down the desktop client by 70 percent and offer ultra quiet operation in both systems, significant ergonomic benefits for enterprise users.

"We believe that with these new FLORA clients, Hitachi has truly extended the concept of security in connected client computing solutions, and especially into the exciting young market of notebook form factor mobile clients," said Epan Wu, deputy director of CPU product marketing, VIA. "By leveraging the leading performance per watt of our next generation processors, Hitachi is also able to offer real dollar savings in running costs, providing significant benefits to an enterprise's bottom line."
