That media processor allows the board to support HD video with up to 1080p resolution. The default processor speed is 1.2GHz for the X2, while other CPUs are available including a 1.6GHz VIA C7-D and a 1GHz C7. The little board has four USB 2.0 ports, three COM pin headers, and a LPC connector. It also rocks a single COM port, keyboard ports, and three audio jack inputs.

you know what, i like helping the underdog, my car pc is based on AMD E350, and my web browsing laptop is based on a quad core AMD Processor!

I've got nothing against Intel, but the market feel stale at the moment!

VIA have been promising use Quad Core Processors for how long now? Give me it on Mini-ITX, give it to me in a budget laptop i don't care......just give me a chance to buy the damn thing!

Not good enough VIA!!!!!!!

You can buy a mini-itx board and drop a quad core in, not sure what you are waiting on.
