    And just when you thought the AMD 780G based ITX solution by J&W Technology slated for next week was one of a kind, (covered here), there already is competition for it, this time from the opposite front. Zotac has innovated an Intel + NVIDIA ITX board based on the nForce 610i chipset called Zotac nForce 610i ITX. This LGA 775 board comes features a single chip core-logic, supports the latest Intel processors including FSB 1333 MHz, the 45nm Wolfdale chip is supported, older quad-core chips are as well. Unlike the 780G ITX solution this features two full-size (240-pin) DDR2 slots, two SATA II ports and an IDE port. A single PCI-E x1 slot is present. The board in the picture only has one D-Sub display output driven by the GeForce 7050 IGP, and a 6-channel audio. This board isn't as feature-rich as the AMD 780G solution, but it's a nifty solution for internet shacks and cybercafe use. With even a cheap Pentium Dual Core E2000 series processor, it provides sufficient power for everyday tasks.

    Zotac rocks.. My friend has a Zotac 780i and 9800GTX. They offer lifetime warranties on everything too I think.

    Review! Review!

    Please? Purdy please? With cream and a cherry on top?

    Those AMD ITX boards look fascinating.

    What I like about this board compared to the 780G, is it use's full size DIMM's and supports LGA775. Would like it more if they included a PCI-e x16 slot, gives user more choices for expansion.

    the 780G motherboard has much better specs IMO.a pci-e is crucial if you are thinking of gaming or even if you want a decent HTPC IMO always

    Probably.. slowly tho. My HD 2100 runs 1080p VERY nicely and plays videos very nice as well.

    610i is no match whatsoever compared to the 780G. The 610i even though it can use full side DIMMs, it can't really use anything high-end due to the age of the chipset. 780G, on the otherhand should be able to use better notebook DIMMS.

    However the 780G; I'd ONLY put at the most a 4850e in it considering how compact the power phases are. This Zotac could take a Q6600 without any issues.

    I'd be questioning what you'd do with a good CPU good RAM and a crippling IGP though :rolleyes:

    If zotac used notebook DIMMs instead of the full sized DIMM slots, then I would think that the PCI-E 16x would be a possible option.

    Oh well.

    HD Playback.... well in terms of IGP 780G just.... mows the 610i. Gaming, 780G can at least play HL2 a bit faster than my old 9550.

    yea, you can play modern games with the 780g (an amazing feat for an igp).

    no. you cant get video acceleration on files, only from DVD/HD/BD media.

    the onboard video here only has VGA output which means no HDCP, so the legit disks would look like crap anyway.

    this is NOT a media board.

    you can run a phenom 9750 in the 780G just fine its rated to run 95w phenoms. hell i'm running my phenom 9500 @2.8ghz a 3 phase biostar (rated again for 95w) and this thing is pulling ~150w at this setting

    and 780G is just as fast as a X1600

    Well this might just happen to be a cheap upgrade for my file / print server lol.

    Not every small computer has to be a media box :p....



    I just wish these new ITX's had an AC out instead of having to use a normal PSU. (or DC-DC converter)

    most mini ITX stores sell PSU power packs for these systems that are very similar to laptop power bricks.

    http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/

    ^ if you go there and look under cases->mini ITX, several cases come with 50-90W PSU bricks.

    Yeah but look at how much they cost lol.

    I would much rather just get a laptop power block and plug it into the back of the PC (like my current server :D). The AC adapter (actualy a 60W LCD one) powers the system beautifully, and it costed $20 on ebay.

    Plus being a home built case, I could make the case really small (as the PSU is external to the case, like laptops).
