Foxconn intros new 1.8GHz Atom boards

Written by Fudzilla staff


More ITX muscle
Foxconn has introduced two new ITX flavored Atom motherboards with a twist.

Unlike most Atom boards on the market, Foxconn’s new series does not use 1.6GHz parts, but rather the dual-core Atom D525 and single-core D425, both clocked at 1.8GHz. Of course, the higher clocks will hardly deliver a breathtaking performance boost, but nevertheless it’s welcome, as the boards cost just a tad more than plain 1.6GHz models.

Both boards feature Intel’s NM10 chipset, two DDR2 slots, a PCI slot, 4 USB ports and two SATA II connectors. Sadly, like most cheap Atom boards, neither has HDMI or DVI, so you’re stuck with VGA output.

The dual-core D52S is priced at €74, while the single-core D42S costs €63. Although it’s nice to see a bit more performance in cheap ITX boards, we’d much rather see some digital video outputs than a couple of hundred megahertz more.

will the higher clocks increase the velocity of the foxconn employees?

So, are they just having issues getting this architecture to go higher in clock speed, or just getting it higher without seeing the thermals and voltage levels skyrocket?

I think they're stuck at 9.8 m/s^2

That's acceleration (rate of change of velocity over time), he's talking about velocity or speed. Probably that chip needs bigger building, you know, to stuff more people in, working on OC chips, so higher building = longer gravitational acceleration = higher falling speed, so yeah!

Man, I gotta stop with this black humor s#it...

Nu! Dar tocmai am terminat jurnalismul, si ma perfectionez citind articolele lui Fuad.

Fix pe ale lui trebuie sa le eviti... Nick, Peter si restul sunt mai obiectivi.

Good god...they've just started to talk funny on here.Anyone would think that the internet spans the globe :-)

Stiu de Fuad, e evident; de aici "perfectionarea". Ale lui Nick sunt cele mai savuroase. And yes, "teh internets" is a big place.
