If you thought the motherboards used for netbooks were tiny, you ain’t seen nothing. IBASE just announced its latest 3.5 inch system board, the IB888. That’s right, it’s a complete mainboard that’s small enough to fit in a 3.5 inch drive bay.
The IB888 is designed to use the low power Intel Atom Poulsboro series processors running between 1.33GHz and 1.6GHz. It has a single RAM SO-DIMM which supports up to 2GB. There’s support for VGA and DVI video output, 8 USB ports, 1 SATA connection, and an SD card reader. The board includes integrated Intel GMA500 graphics, which means you won’t likely be playing 1080p video with this little guy. But if you’re more interested in low power and small form factor devices than HD video and graphics performance, the IB888 is pretty sexy.
