Asus rolls out passive C-60 ITX motherboard

Written by Fudzilla staff

In case the E-450 is just too fast for you

Asus has rolled out what appears to be the world’s first ITX motherboard based on AMD’s C-60 APU, the Asus C60M1-I. Although we saw a flood of Brazos boards over the past two years, this is the first time a vendor opted for the slower and more energy efficient C-60 APU.

The C-60 is a dual-core clocked at 1GHz, with integrated HD 6290 graphics. It is coupled with AMD’s A50M chipset, with SATA 6Gbps support and the board features six USB 2.0 ports, VGA and DVI.

Oddly enough, there is no HDMI out, or USB 3.0 for that matter, so the C60M1-I does not sound like good choice for HTPC rigs. It should feel at home in SFF office machines, though.

Several European retailers started shipping the C60M1-I this week for about €79. This makes it one of the cheapest passively cooled ITX boards out there, but then again there are a few Cedar Trail boards with faster CPUs and HDMI in the same price range.
