Asus intros the mother of all Atom boards

Written by


Atom D525, ION 2, USB 3.0
Asus has introduced a new Atom ITX board and we’re glad to report that it is the best spec’d Atom board on the market, but it’s also the priciest.

The AT5IONT-I packs a dual-core Atom D525 processor clocked at 1.8GHz and it features two DDR3 SO-DIMM slots. It’s passively cooled, which comes as no surprise considering the 13W TDP.

A PCIe x4 slot is also on board, as well as 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, eSATA and b/g/n wireless.

Thanks to integrated ION 2 graphics with 512MB of memory, the tiny board should pack some graphics muscle as well, but more importantly it features DVI and HDMI video outs, making it a perfect choice for HTPC builders.

There is a downside, however, as the AT5IONT-I will sell for more than €140. Although it’s a very impressive piece of kit, we just don’t believe it’s worth it. If you are looking for more performance in an ITX board, you’re better off with an AMD 785G board and a proper dual or triple core Athlon processor. The price is roughly the same.

Still, we must note that Asus has done a truly great job with this tiny board, despite questionable pricing.

What source? The board has been listed on our price search engine since last night.

http://buy.fudzilla.com/a551976.html

Also, It's not my fault you weren't brought up properly, so use such language in the confines of your home, preferably on those who did such a great job raising you.

I think you need to chill the F out MrAlex before you have a stroke. From YOUR link...

[UPDATE] Shockingly, Fudzilla wrote an article on the board today (7/22/2010), one day after this was posted on OCN. Just a coincidence? I would never know. However, it seems that they did do a little research and found some more information on the board. I have updated some of the specs to what Fudzilla has said.

This board is way cooler looking than Jetway JNC96FL-510-LF Mini ITX. But what board will perform better?

I can't wait to build one of these mini computers. Anyone know if you can run 2gig so-dims?

pair 4gig ram w/ a small 32gig ssd and you have a nice 1080p blue ray station.

I am not sure what you are talking about twistedneck, the Jetweay NC96FL is not an ION board. The Jetway next-gen ION board will be the JNC98-525-LF http://jetwaycomputer.com/NC98.html

Hmm...thanks for the information. I wrote the article on OCN. But c'mon now. Almost 0 information on this board for about 4 months and magically shows up 3 hours after I write the article on OCN....

Well I am not going to whine about it. Your research did help me out a bit.
