VIA makes the Nano processor. They launched the 3000 line last November.

x86 requires a license from Intel and x86-64 needs another one from AMD. I don't know of any other manufacturers of note making X86 today.

pretty much, which is unfortunate, and the fact that VIA doesn't compete in teh desktop space as well (leaving Intel and AMD)
