Hurray! Hurrah! The VIA Nano processor! At last ;)

Now we know this is faster that the Atom 270. But how does it compare to a Atom 330. Someone at TPU please do a heads-to-head :) The lastest iTX from all camps (intel, VIA, nV Ion AspireRevo )

o yea, I feel either the Ion platform w/ the 330 or the Asus EEE box 208 will be best (the asus integrated a radeon 3400 onto the board!, but I'm not sure if it'll use a 270 or 330 =( ) at least until dual core nano's come out later this year on Via's new itx platform

Why did VIA pack this board with electrolytic capacitors?! I would gladly pay a few bucks extra for the improved reliability of solid caps.

Ugh.... just let Unichrome die....

The S3 Chrome 9 is an excellent alternative with tons more horsepower, options, and not a huge increase in power (as far as I understand) and other Nano based boards use it.... why go back to such an old and decrepit IGP when you're trying to make it a multimedia platform?
