at least the via chips are true x86. the transmetta chips need a translator to run x86 micro code, therefore SLOWER than an old x86 chip that puts out that much heat.

Ah! Flashbacks to the Itanium! Anyway, I would certainly check out Via's offerings if you want low power and heat processors...and those nano-atx boards are pretty sweet.
