VIA has a brand new chip, the Isaiah Processor designed with Centaur, the people responsible for Cyrix.  While some stats are lacking in details as of yet, [H]ard|OCP pegs the speed at 1GHz when run below 1v and up to to 2GHz at 1.15v.  While they are not going to work on dual core chips yet, having enough power to play Crysis in a 60mm2 (think dime sized) chip is rather impressive.
