Shuttle plans to sell standalone XPC motherboards

SFF enthusiast loves Shuttle. The maker of the famous XPC small form factor desktop has announces that it will be selling XPC’s motherboard as a standalone product. So if you own a Shuttle XPC, you can upgrade your system to a newer motherboard and CPU without having to buy a whole XPC barebones anymore.

Pico-ITX, motherboard standards keep getting smaller

Pico-ITX, motherboard standards keep getting smaller

I know that all of you modders out there just can't wait for a smaller motherboard to cram into you newest custom-cases. It looks like the wait will be over soon. Via, who already makes some of the smallest boards around is gearing up for the release of their newest standard called pico-ITX. Measuring in at 3.9 x 2.8 inches, it only takes up half of space of their current Nano-ITX boards.

Looking at the picture, you can get a feel for the size by looking at how large the VGA and ethernet ports seem. Also, you will notice that those are the only two two ports that are built onto the board. Your other connections will be connected via pin headers, so be prepared to run plenty of cables.It is going to sport a C7 processor running at 1GHz, so it'll run about anything you'd expect to run off of a system this small.

So once again, VIA is setting the new standard in tiny computing, much to the delight of modders everywhere. Now the only thing left to do is figure out what to put it in.
