VIA has joined forces with U.S. PC manufacturer Systemax to built a low power PC for the U.S. market based around its C7-D processor. The system will be using a 1.5GHz C7-D and a VIA pc2500G motherboard.
The motherboard features 2 PCI slots, integrated VIA UniChrome Pro II graphics, onboard 5.1-channel audio, 10/100Mbit Ethernet, two SATA and two IDE connectors and two memory slots for DDR2 memory.
There will be two SKUs, the most basic one retailing for US$299.99 and it comes with 512MB of 533MHz DDR2 memory and an 80GB SATA hard drive, as well as Windows XP Home and a 16x DVD-ROM drive and 90 days warranty.
