"Ezra" core C3 processor
Sat Sep 29, 2001 | 2:46A| PermaLink
The Centaur team have produced two more generations of this processor, now; first the Samuel 2, and now the new super-small, super-cool (in the temperature sense, not in the reminds-you-of-the-young-Marlon-Brando sense) Samuel 3, also known as "Ezra". The Cyrix III name's been dropped, now, and the processor's called the Via C3. The flagship C3 is the 866MHz model, whose official release date was the 11th of September, 2001. The C3 release was not quite the most exciting thing that happened on that day, but it's nonetheless in the market now. Via sent me an 800MHz processor to play with. It uses the same core as the 866MHz model, and has 92% of its clock speed, so it's basically the same thing as the top-spec CPU. The Samuel-core C3s, or Cyrix IIIs, or whatever the heck you want to call them, weren't high performers. Particularly for tasks with lots of floating point calculations, at which the Centaur cores, well, suck. But that wasn't a big deal, since these chips were and are aimed at the OEM business computer and low-power pseudo-embedded appliance markets.
