    Note that is a preproduction test!

    C3 733Mhz the final will be a c3 933Mhz...
    So the match is C3 800Mhz again C3 733Mhz
    and the 733Mhz is already better (due to a better chipset cle266,DDR...)

    you can already take preorder at:

    www.mini-itx.de

    200 euro=200$

    late november for europe (rumor)

    why dont people get those PIII/Celeron boards instead? i would like to have the ability to change processor, athleast up to 1,3 if it's needed in the future...and via processors fit there too, if you want low-heat instead

    well

    a complete VIA EPIA C3 800Mhz is $113.85
    with cpu,video out, network....

    Here is the power consomption of it:

    VIA Eden C3 800Mhz: (on the ATX connector)
    12v 58mA
    5V 632mA (167mA au repos)
    3.3V 850mA (700mA au repos)

    HD:
    12V 142mA
    5V 275mA

    a complete test for the power will be avaible soon on www.divx-car.com

    No other CPU beat this ratio CPU power/conso

    And it's really easy to power this baby with a home made dc-dc power supply!

    But the Freetech board are an alternative solution...
