    Just as the last ITX news, why still PCI?

    Agreed. These boards should at the very least have a pci-e 1x. I don't see why companies don't put like open ended pci-e 4x slots on these so you can fit a low end pci-e 16x card for htpc use that isnt going to need a whole 16x lane worth of bandwidth.

    These devices are for legacy applications, like cash machines, industrial equipment, controllers and sensors, etc. You replace the board and transfer the control equipment. Most control equipment is on PCI.

    i wonder, does VIA has chance to get the competition since many brands enter mini itx market with powerful processor and many features..
    VIA so far looks go nowhere especially after mini itx booming and many brands go into it

    I want them to go more into nanoITX. I have a board and 12x12 cm is so cute and mod friendly.
