Intel isn’t expected to officially launch its next-generation Atom processor line until later this year or early next year. But Fudzilla reports that two Intel Essential Series ITX motherboards with Intel Atom D510 and D410 processor are starting to appear at internet retail sites.
The D510MO motherboard uses a dual core 1.67GHz Intel Atom D510 CPU with 2x512kb of cache and a 13W TDP. It includes Intel GMA 3150 graphics built onto the same chip, so while the TDP may seem significantly higher than the Atom 230 processor that’s available today, when you take the graphics processor into account it’s not.
The second motherboard is the D410PT which sports the single core 1.66 GHz Intel Atom D410 processor.
Both boards are passively cooled, which means you won’t have any fans. They also feature Ethernet and VGA ports, 3 external USB ports and 4 internal ones, and 2 SATA II connectors. The D510MO board will feature 5.1 channel audio and Gigabit Ethernet, while the D410PT has 10/100MB LAN and doesn’t appear to have 5.1 channel audio.
I can’t find a retail link for the D510MO, but if you’ve got one handy, feel free to share it in the comments!
oh – and mini-box.com
tranquilpc-shop.co.uk and cartft.com both feature the D510MO.
The question will be whether the 3150 is close enough to the 3100 to – for instance – allow OS X to work on it…
the 3150 is supposedly faster than a 3100 IGP, because it’s essentialy the same part, just produced in a smaller process and clocked higher
