AMD may be hard at work on its own DTX
small form factor, but VIA's Mini-ITX standard has gotten a surprising amount of attention lately. DigiTimes reported last month that Intel was planning to push
Mini-ITX for small-form-factor Core 2 Duo-based systems. Now, Albatron has told us that it plans to show off a Mini-ITX motherboard for AMD processors at the CeBIT trade show in Germany next month.
Albatron says the board will support "a full range of AMD's latest dual core and 64-bit processors" as well as up to 2GB of dual-channel DDR2 memory via two SO-DIMMs. Albatron also boasts that the board will include "the market's most powerfully integrated graphics engine" and HDMI video output capability, allowing systems built around the board to hook up to high-definition TVs. Also in the mobo's feature set will be support for 300MB/s Serial ATA with RAID, Gigabit Ethernet, and FireWire. According to Albatron, the board will come out near the end of this month.
