Via Technologies Inc. Tuesday announced its first Mini-ITX motherboard designed to be used with its C7 processor.
The new board allows the chip to be used in smaller PCs. Measuring 170 millimeters by 170 mm, the Mini-ITX is one of the smallest motherboards on the market and is a favorite of PC enthusiasts.
Previous versions of Via's Mini-ITX motherboards, which are sold under the EPIA brand, are designed to be used with the company's Eden processor line. However, the EPIA EN series announced on Tuesday includes versions designed for both Eden and the C7.
The boards also add support for a 400MHz front-side bus and up to 1G byte of faster DDR2 (double data rate 2) DRAM (dynamic RAM), Via said.
The EPIA EN motherboards are now in production and will be available later this month, Via said. Pricing was not disclosed.
