I what to know this too. I want to find out if I just found my new gateway, depending on how the new IVB celeron competes. As long as its at least as fast as an Atom I would be satisfied. The Celeron 847 was a hit or miss depending on what the CPU was doing.

Edit: I found that Celeron too btw: http://ark.intel.com/products/72061/Intel-Celeron-Processor-1007U-2M-Cache-1_50-GHz

1.5Ghz over the 1.1 on the 847 should give for a nice boost. Also supporting dual-channel DDR3-1600 is pretty nifty. Not that this CPU will be able to use it all. :p

That PCI-E slot very well could be a full 16 lanes. It almost makes me wish this board had two x8 ports instead.

However, looking at this again and again it looks nicer every time. I really like the 1.5Ghz versus the 1.1 on the Celeron 847 and the PCI-E slot vs PCI is very nice as well. Having the dual lan leaves the port open for something that can do a little more heavy lifting, such as a multi-lan card (4x1Gbps) or a RAID card for added storage beyond what the board already offers. I think this board has a lot of potential as a mini-server in general since you can cram 16Gb(2x8)1x 8Gb of ram in that puppy as well. :cool:

Edit: I got excited since this CPU has two memory channels but you can only stick one DIMM into the board. I can't say I like that. :( 8Gb is enough but supporting 16Gb would have been pretty nifty. It's what gave the 847 a good step up over the Atom imho.

Compared to Synology?

Might this be a good alternative to a Synology or other NAS setup? Anyone care to compare? The Synology has always turned me off due to it's price.

I wonder when this companies will learn how to present their products.

When you launch a new product you state the price and the stores people can buy it form! It's not the next iPhone to presume people will seek information on it and jump on it when it becomes available. It's a freaking NAS motherboard! How more niche can you get? It has only one chance of "stardom", when sites like TechPoweup present them. Although i'm really interested in such a thing i would not include it in my daily checks to see if they published a price and if it is available in Europe.

So when your are an relatively unknown comply and you launch a very niche product, PLEASE state price and availability!

Also, a fanless design would be great.

Finally they selling this kind of mobos!
But too late, I have my ASUS E35M1-M PRO (m-ATX)

And if you still need mini ITX:
ASUS E45M1-I DELUXE, with it's "awesome" CPU!
...or you can choose:
ASUS C60M1-I which consumes even less energy ;)

I too use the E35M1-M PRO for NAS purposes, two PCI-e (x4 and x1), 4 SATA and a nice passive heatsink. Have 15 drives using Flexraid no problems.

I just bought Gigabyte GA-C847N Dual Core Celeron 847 Mini-ITX Board with Dual LAN for my NAS/Router/switch/Video player/File/Torrent/FTP/.... server/streamer. For added network slots to make it as a true 1Gbps switch you can buy some dual lan cards form ebay, as the new one are expensive as hell.

This one looks like a good solution, but it's all about the price, if they can keep it under 100$ it's a winner.

The price is not higher than $120+flight ticket

The prices list in china is around ~RMB 690. But it seems you only can buy in china.
