We wrote about the Pico-ITX form-factor back in January, calling Via’s 100 x 72mm motherboard “the new standard” in micro computing; well, the first design to hit the shelves is the EPIA PX10000G, complete with a 1GHz C7 CPU and support for up to 1GB of SDRAM.
Despite the small size, it doesn’t skimp on processing or connectivity. An onboard 2D/3D graphics chip and hardware MPEG-2/4 and WMV9 decoding means that the PX10000G can happily support HD DVD resolution, while audio is taken care of with Via’s own VT1708A codec.
The board is available, initially in limited numbers to developers, this month.
