The advantage of the Core 2 Duo's common L2 cache between both cores is clearly apparent when we consider the SU7300 has a clock speed of only 1.3GHz, versus the Nano Dual-Core at 1.8GHz. Even then, the TDP of the SU7300 - which, bare in mind has 1MB more cache to power - is around 10W less than VIA's anticipated final TDP when the Nano Dual Core moves to 40nm. That's a considerable downside for VIA if it wants this CPU to be seriously considered for laptops - ultra-thin or not.

Ha Ha Ha. This is either a terrific troll, or a clueless commentator.
You are incredibly confused I think. You are probably looking at the specifications of all those Chinese tablets running Android floating around, seeing that they have a VIA CPU, and then you mixed them up with the Nano.
Mate, the WM8505 is an ARM-based System-on-Chip design that has nothing to do with the Nano.
