  • Intel MINI-ITX board - D201GLYL & D201GLY

    I ran a couple searches and didn't see anything on this... if this does turn out to be a repost... sorry.

    Intel BLKD201GLYL
    http://www.intel.com/products/mother...1GLY/index.htm
    http://store.mp3car.com/Intel_D201GL..._p/mtb-053.htm $69.95
    http://www.logicsupply.com/products/d201gly $79.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813121317 $89.99

    Looks like a good bang for the buck...

    Like the reviewer on Newegg, why did Intel use a SiS chipset? Why not their own? If they stuck in something like the Intel 855GME, you can get 800x480 out of it easily. The 40pin IDE sucks. Why not 44pin option for a notebook drive? Now you gotta use an adapter for 44pin, which is just more cost and hassle. The DDR2 is nice. The 6 USB2 is nice.

    Gen 3: Pentium M 2.0GHz - 5.25" SBC - 2007
    Gen 4: (coming soon: Core2 Duo - 3.5" SBC - 2009)
    ...it never ends

      For $90, it is a great deal. Who cares if it has the SiS chipset, this thing takes Core2Duos! At this price-point it is a steal.

        For a car pc, it seems pretty good to me.

        What is the processor speed of that Celeron? Anyone know?

          looks like Intel are confused as they list it as micro ATX but its mini ITX

          @ 2k1 how do you work out the core 2 duo part, its embedded chip and nobody mentions socket 775?

          Forget 44 pin IDE it should have SATA

            Bundle CPU
            With Cooler Integrated Intel Celeron 215 processor with a 533 MHz system bus
            Supported CPU
            CPU Socket Type Socket T (LGA 775)
            CPU Type Core 2 Duo/Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron D
            Supported CPU Technologies Hyper-Threading Technology

            It seems as if it is not embedded. It is just bundled. That is from Newegg's specifications. They have been known to screw up before though, so who knows.

            And I prefer good ol' IDE anyday over SATA. In the car, an IDE connector is much more sturdy, and with OS's less than Vista, SATA drivers are a pain in the @$$.

              Celeron 215 is a 1.33GHz proc on 479 form. I don't know where the LGA775 comes from.

              Edit:

              Ouch. Reading the "Product Guide" pdf linked from the logicsupply link above, Intel says there's no support for S3. Sucks. Also, it says: "Desktop Board D201GLY includes an Intel Celeron processor. The processor is soldered to the Desktop Board and is not customer upgradeable."

                  Well that does suck big time on both counts.

                  NewEgg screws up again...

                  I remeber the original site, with the excellent product descriptions and personal emails after an order. NewEgg has gone to pits recently.

                    Yes a Celeron 1.3 will beat a Via 1.2 anyday anytime.

                      Which is why it may not be the perfect "dream board"... but it's got great bang for the buck. Costs much less than any of the new C7 based boards and better performance.

                        Personally no S3, means no sale to me. Especially for a htpc or carpc.

                            If the mounting holes are the same... the specs from Intel are the same dimensions as MINI-ITX... 171.45mm x 171.45mm... 17cm x 17cm.

                            This is kinda interesting...

                            What's wrong with this state (ref. S3 comment)??




                            If you guys can offer the board at a price competitive with NewEgg and LogicSupply...

                              from newegg:
                              Pros:
                              Good quality. Nice processor for being embedded. Awesome price for it being an ITX board.

                              Intel:
                              With an Intel® Celeron® processor and graphics integrated on the board, this board enables easy system integration and helps you to achieve a lower system cost.

                              Like you say though who knows as Intel cant even get the form factor right.

                              SATA any day for me its much faster and I have never had a problem with it in XP SP2. Also allows for far more efficient air flow for cooling especially in small cases like we use in cars. The other bonus is it doesn't matter if its 3.5" or 2.5" SATA is SATA although I have no idea if the performance benefit is still there with 2.5". At the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference though.

                              Edit:... just read the other replies so my quotes are useless now lol oh well.
