    Besides the MSH61DK mentioned earlier today, Gigabyte Technology has recently unveiled another Mini-ITX motherboard, one M7V90PI which is based around VIA's VX900 chipset and is equipped with one Nano U3300 (1.2 GHz) single-core processor.

    Aimed for the embedded market, the M7V90PI also packs (just) one DDR3 SO-DIMM slot, Chrome9 HD (DirectX 9) integrated graphics, a VIA Vinyl VT1708S audio codec, two SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, one PCIe x1 slot, Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 connectors, and D-Sub, plus DVI outputs.

    Good. I just hope the price is decent and that you actually can find them in the wild. Also I want nano-itx. :(

    Only a 4-pin ATX plug? It must use very little power.

    The U3300 (which is a single-core chip, the news piece has been corrected) has a TDP of 6.8W and the VX900 tops about 4.5W.

    If I am correct, less than any other x86 PC ever :)

    How would it switch on the PSU without using the 20/24pin ATX connector?

    Their website says this:

    If so this is even more interesting.

    EDIT: To the left is a DC plug.

    I don't get it.
    It has a DC-IN on the back panel and also an 'ATX 12V DC In (4 Pin)' internally.
    You can choose one or the other?

    On a different note, does anybody know of a board that uses the VN1000 chipset?

    I don't know either and there's not a lot of info out now. I guess more info on that will come up. You can't even download drivers and manuals for the board yet. :p

    So, will it be faster than atom?:laugh:

    I don't understand, the idea of using an external adapter is to avoid the hassle of having a PSU in the case. The problem here is that this board needs a standard PSU for the CPU.

    You can use one or the other. This layout is standard for embedded motherboards.
