AOpen chops Pentium M cube in half
DigiTimes has the goods on an upcoming Pentium M small form factor system from AOpen that's just over four inches tallhalf the height of the company's EY855-II Pentium M cube. In addition to sporting a 479-pin socket, the system supports up to 2GB of memory, can accommodate 3.5" desktop hard drives, and even has room for AGP graphics cards up to 185mm in length. Not bad for half a toaster.
Dubbed the "Cube Mini," the system will debut in Japan and eventually be available worldwide. AOpen is also working on an Alviso-powered Pentium M small form factor system that it plans to release in the second quarter of the year.
