  • Anyone try the Intel D945GCLF (with integrated Atom 1.6Ghz CPU)

    This is the new "Atom" processor as dubbed by Intel to kill Via and their product line

    just curious if anyone has tryed this combo processor is a Intel Atom 230 @ 1x 1.60GHz (Silverthorne 45nm) and supposedly unlike the D201GLY2 which runs the processor at around 20 wats this one runs it at 2.05W and its only a few more dollars then the D201GLY2

    Im interested in hearing if anyone has tryed this combo yet and how its working....

          I just did an online chat with their online sales guy, Benjamin (IIRC) and they DON'T have it in stock yet.
          Here in the U.S., we've been told that the earliest we can get a sample is June, whatever that means, probably END OF JUNE.

          Adding insult to injury, we just got word from Intel that the D201GLY2 (Little Valley 2) is going end-of-life at the end of June (IIRC), which is a big bummer for us as we were planning to use thousands of those babies. I wish I were kidding. I'm not.

              D945gclf

              I am a new member here. I received the shipment from CarTFT this morning. But it will not be opened until I get home later this evening. I will post here my findings after I had some time to play with it.

                what i like to know:

                how mutch power for standby
                how long is the bois post (without the windows part)
                how quick to startup form scratch and suspend.
                Are ther hickups with suspend mode.

                Well you get the picture....

                  I don't see how that "kills" the VIA product line.

                  It's still a mini-ITX, and VIA's benefit those who are restricted by space limitations. Someone tell Intel that nano-ITX is the way to go.

                    I had some time to play with the board last Saturday and the experience was not good. I could not install linux/Vista/XP. All of them crashed during install. Only thing stable was DOS. May be, being new, I am doing something wrong. I treated it like a regular motherboard, added a keyboard, brand new SATA DVD drive, and a brand new SATA 500GB hard drive, and tried installing OS from a CD/DVD.

                      Stable Dos...

                      What kind of errors did you get, and when did they occur?

                      Did you power the CD-ROM from an automotive PSU?

                        hmm, i had somting simmular with my commell. Xp installed fine with the sata disk, but XP would't install on a ide. Turned out that the sata was ide 0 and ide was ide 1
                        XP wants to install on ide 0, you need to check the bios for that, so try a different sata port.
                        Hope you get it running

                          No not yet. I switch the SATA ports between DVD drive and Hard drive. Still no success. The BSOD bug check code is 8E. It happens immediately after all the files are copied to hard drive (probably when windows takes control and starts running the boot drivers).

                            8E its a bit out of my leage , but found a few quotes on the BSOD bug 8E:

                            Both your minidumps crash with 1bit memory corruption.
                            Go HERE (http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic35103.html) and follow the instructions.
                            It is true that some faulty ram can pass Memtest. If memtest gives your errors, your ram is bad.

                            There are a couple of ways to diag it.
                            You don't say which PB model it is, but if it has two sticks of RAM you can try removing one of the sticks to see if the problem persists, and then swapping with the other stick likewise.
                            The other way is to download a RAM test utility and run that.
                            I can onely find 8E code with ram problems, so i think thats where you should look first.
                            ps win 2000pro installed without any problem on that system (its les picky about the ide number) so with win 2000 you have one thing less to look at.

                            Hope its the ram, and you can fix it / get it fixed

                              I have another RAM and will try tonight.
                              Thanks for the pointer.
