Last month MSI launched its first Bay Trail-D board, based on a dual-core Celeron J1800 SoC and it is listed at â‚¬69, although itâ€™s still not available in Europe. Gigabyte and Biostar are now joining the fun with their J1800 boards, with a very similar spec. The boards were unearthed by Fanlesstech.
The Gigabyte J1800N-D2H has the same J1800 processor clocked at 2.41GHz, two DDR3L SO-DIMM slots, PCI Express x1 slot, mini PCI Express x1 slot, SATA 3Gbps and a single USB 3.0 port. Biostarâ€™s J1800NH has one SO-DIMM slot, one PCI Express x1 slot, SATA 3Gbps and USB 3.0.
Both boards have gigabit Ethernet, VGA, HDMI, and four USB 2.0 ports each, along with a standard PS/2 port for ancient keyboards and mice. Best of all they are both passive.
There is still no word on the price, but they will probably end up close in the â‚¬60 to â‚¬70 range at launch.
