All-in-one nettops are getting more powerful each day. Fudzilla has dug up specifications and details about two upcoming Eee Top systems from Asus, which will feature built-in 20" 1600x900 displays, either AMD or Intel processors, and discrete graphics.
We already know a little bit about the ET2010PNT; Nvidia named that machine in its launch presentation for the next-generation Ion GPU, and it even provided us with a high-resolution photo. Fudzilla says the ET2010PNT will also have a dual-core Atom D510 processor, 2GB of RAM (upgradable to 4GB), a 500GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and 802.11 Wi-Fi. Depending on the version, multi-touch capabilities might be on the menu, as well.
For folks who need a little more processing grunt, the ET2010AGT will deliver similar specs, but with an Athlon II X2 250u processor, Radeon HD 5470 graphics, and up to 8GB of memory. The AMD CPU should be a dual-core design clocked at 1.6GHz, while the graphics chip, being part of the Radeon HD 5000 series, will have DirectX 11 support. Just don't expect killer gaming performance, since the model number suggests pretty tame specifications.
Check out Fudzilla's news post for a couple of shots of the AMD-powered Eee Top in action, both gathered from Asus' CeBIT booth.
