  • New Mini ITX Motherboard from Intel D510MO/Mount Olive

    Intel's newest Mini board the D510M or Mount Olive is set to be launched in the beginning of January. We have had the privilege of testing this board for the last 2 months and have been quite impressed with it.
    The Mount Olive is Intel's followup board the the D945GCLF2 and has some nice features that the LF2 was missing.
    Here is a quick run down on the specs, features, and highlights:
    Estimated price $95
    Dual Core 1.66GHz Pineview CPU Embedded
    Support for 4GB of RAM
    Totally fanless
    Draws 50% less power than the LF2
    Has a Mini PCIe slot
    Faster FSB 667Mhz
    It will come in 3 flavors
    Standard- no com or lpt ports on the I/O shield headers for them only
    Legacy- will have COM and LPT ports on the I/O shield
    LVDS- no COM or LPT ports on the I/o but it will have support for LVDS
    Runs Windows 7 like a champ
    We did find a few draw backs as well:
    With the exception of the LVDS option the only choice for video output is VGS
    There is no IDE or EIDE bus at all, just 2 SATA II connectors.
    Has a tall heat sink (we already have a shorter one being made so it will fit more cases)
    I will post more detailed specs on the board and our test results when I have more time. If any one has any specific questions about this board post them here and I will do my best to answer them.

        Punky,
        I will post the bios post times shortly. What do you mean by more flexible?

        Aziodale,
        No there will be no more S-video

            Here's some more info and pictures.

            The spec looks promising, but the design is poor, especially for small, in-car usage:
            -too few USB connectors
            -no optical/coax audio connector
            -the ram slots are too close to each other, and to the heatsink
            -the power connector is in the center of the board
            -audio connectors are too close to the PCI slot (could be a problem)

            We should wait for the Zotac or ASUS version of it...

            The basic idea was good, skipping legacy connectors and controllers is a good thing.
            Maybe they should make a board without onboard audio, instead of using a crappy one

            The best would be an ultralight version without audio, ps/2, onboard lan, but with 10-16 USB connectors

              Why get rid of all the legacy connections like com, lpt, IDE/PATA...yet keep the same old ancient PCI slot.

                Hey hey, no more P4 power connector either.

                Nay, a brand new chipset, the NM10.

                  I was wondering if it had more options than previous LF2 bios, ie quickbook, usb boot, or anything new that wasn't already in the LF2 bios.

                  How would the board work without the P4 connector? especially with PSU with the P4 connector? Or is it as simple as leaving the P4 connector and the psu will be operational as usual?

                  Fanless is really nice!

                    Marketing reasons, an atom with a decent PCIe video card can kill low-end processors
                    on the market. Also, there are still many PCI devices, for example sound cards, servo controllers, etc.

                    The energy consumption of the board is very low, so it doesn't need a P4 connector.

                      The graphics is GMA3150 I believe
                      The time to post is identical to the LF2

                        Yes, it is GMA3150, according to mini-box

                          I'd love a lower power setup that's very capable... but I'm not giving up my PCI-E sound card to do so. They're already making 2 versions of the board... legacy and non... why not throw in the PCI-E on the non-legacy version and leave the legacy with the PCI. Then again...I know the answer to that too unfortunately

                          it's like

                              I think it's safe to buy Asus AT3N7A-1, we've got about 30 mini-PC's based on it
                              (at my workplace), quite impressive. Ideal for CarPC/HTPC use I think.
