Taipei, Taiwan, May 27, 2009 – VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the adoption of its VIA Nano processor by Shuttle Inc. in its latest ultra small form factor PC, the fanless Shuttle XS29F. Ideal for home office or small business environments where space is often at a premium, the Shuttle XS29F is completely fanless for near silent operation.

The VIA Nano-powered Shuttle XS29F takes performance efficiency and low noise to new levels of genius, combining a low profile, unobtrusive design with the superior multimedia and productivity performance of the VIA Nano processor.
