ASUS Displays Pine Trail Based Mini-ITX Motherboard

ASUS displayed its newest mini-ITX form-factor motherboard intended for use in nettops, at the ongoing CES event. The ASUS AT5NM10-I is based on Intel's new second-generation Atom processor platform. It makes use of the Atom D510 dual-core processor, aided by Intel NM10 chipset. The processor operates at 1.66 GHz, and supports single-channel DDR2 667 MHz memory. Due to the lowered thermal footprint of the chipset, ASUS used a single heatsink to cool both the processor and chipset. It provides two DDR2 DIMM slots to hold up to 4 GB of memory. The lone expansion slot is a PCI. Storage comes in the form of two SATA 3 Gb/s ports. Connectivity includes 6-channel audio, 10/100 Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel, four by headers, D-Sub for display, serial and parallel ports, and PS/2. There is no word on the availability or price.

I don't know about nettops, this screams embedded applications to me. Serial and parallel port, legacy PS2 by sacrificing USB, 2 SATA, PCI, and fanless. I doubt too many people would be going crazy for it in a nettop with so much emphasis on legacy parts.

Nice to see the new atoms showing their face though.
