"EPIACENTER" has three close-up images of the upcoming EPIA PX pico-ITX motherboard
has managed to
snap close-up images
of VIA’s upcoming EPIA PX motherboard. The EPIA PX sports a new pico-ITX form-factor that measures in at 3.9 x 2.8 inches. This is approximately half the size of VIA’s uber small nano-ITX form-factor. VIA initially demonstrated the EPIA PX at its yearly Lunch@Piero’s event held during the Consumer Electronics Show.
In its early stages a VIA C7 processor clocked at 1 GHz powers the EPIA PX.
is unsure which chipset the EPIA PX contains but believes it is either the VX700 or CX700M.
predicts the EPIA PX features the previously released UMPC oriented
due to the sheer size of the board.
Due to the small footprint of the EPIA PX the board features very limited connectivity options. The EPIA PX features a single VGA and LAN port as far as external connectivity goes. There are plenty of internal headers and connectors, though
does not mention what the headers are for.
AMD recently announced its plans to pursue development of
the DTX form factor
. DTX is considerably larger than pico-ITX, though all formats are essentially derivatives of ATX.

You can't really go much smaller than that and still retain functionality with current connection hardware. Even a seemingly small ethernet port is gigantic on that board. Now they need to work on shrinking

Considering the target markets, I think there is actually an easy way to go much smaller, just put the chipset and CPU on the same core.
