Windows 7: Intel and AMD got themselves a new contender.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Intel and AMD got themselves a new contender.

Intel and AMD got themselves VIA Corp(not so popular) CPU.

I cannot even believe this 4-core CPU that is just clocked at 1.2ghz can run BF3 without breaking a sweat :O

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit/Windows 8 64-bit/Win7 Pro64-bit

VIA Tech CPUs seem to be most used in small factor and server PCs. They are great but there is also not much info about them and the manufacturers of their motherboards are not that well known.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and numerous virtual machines

VIA have been around since the days of Pentium 1 and II CPU's and are still famous for their PC motherboard chipsets. They added ATA 100 to the PIII motherboards. Opps I am showing my age. Got a few of those motherboards still working last time I checked in my junk room pile.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

VIA also used to make GPU chips as well, I used to have one before jumping to ATI(at the time) with their Rage card, then I moved onto an S3 card, then i found out S3 was owned by HTC haha
