DigiTimes is reporting that AOpen, Shuttle, Acer, Gigabyte, and MSI will all introduce systems based on Intel's new VIIV brand. With so many manufacturers taking on the platform, it seems likely we'll end up with more than just a stack of rebadged Mac Mini clones.
VIIV systems will reportedly be introduced in January, with mass production beginning in early February. The platform appears to have a number of interesting components, including a dual-core processor, ICH7 DH south bridge, 5.1-channel audio, a hard drive equipped with Native Command Queuing, and Windows XP Media Center Edition. Intel will apparently launch VIIV on January 9, presumably at the Consumer Electronics Show.
