POV NVIDIA ION motherboard surfaces

Mainboard 578 Published by

As you guys know the combo Intel Atom processors and the NVIDIA ION chipset (read our preview here) is going to be an interesting one, a very interesting one really. Next to a lot of mini-PC's and netbooks based on this technology, some manufacturers will also release stand-alone mITX complete with Intel 230/330 Atom processor, and all ION features.

The Dutch based Point of View is about to launch such a board and quite frankly it's looking mighty fine. If you want a simple PC for internet or just reasonably well accelerated High-def playback. This might be a very viable solution for you.

As stated the motherboard will be Intel Atom 230/330 based and have NVIDIA's MCP7A-ION chipset (same as GF9300) allowing Full HD playback. Included is a Realtek based ALC662 5.1 integrated soundcard solution with get this .. an optical output. HTPC users will love that.

You can insert a maximum of 2GB SO-DIMM memory. Also spot the 4 SATA connectors. Furthermore one PCIe x16 slot, DVI/HDMI and VGA outputs, six USB ports and a Gigabit ethernet connection. 

Later on today I hope to have some prices. But if you build a simple net-PC. Pop in memory, a HDD, PSU and a chassis. And you are good to go for a fully working PC (I would recommend the dual core 330 version though).
