An earlier x86 chip platform from Intel that was introduced in 2006. Pronounced "vyve," Viiv was designed to support Windows Media Center PCs. It included dual and quad core CPUs and chipsets that supported A/V functions such as video recording and entertainment-oriented functions. For example, one Viiv feature was instant on/off like a TV set, which makes Media Center PCs placed in the home theater rack function more like stereo and home theater equipment. ViiV machines were also quieter for living room use. See Windows Media Center, HTPC, digital media server, x86 chip platform and AMD LIVE!.
