    How can it be....The processor only uses 2 watts....

    Whats the power consumption of a epia M10000?
    Here in Portugal we have great weather, lots of brunnets, party a lot,drink a lot....

    On the other hand via Isiah is showing some good potencial.

    "Tweaktown reports from a VIA demo from Computex 2008. VIA showed Crysis running on the new VIA Nano on a Mini-ITX board.

    Quote from the report: "Now that VIA has officially announced its codenamed Isaiah processor called Nano, it can begin showing off just exactly what it is capable of doing.
    On Thursday during Computex VIA held a press conference with CJ Holthaus of Centaur Technology, who demonstrated the power of this small VIA EPIA SN computing platform."
    Read the full report and see a vidoe of Crysis running on the VIA Nano on Tweaktown. "

    Running crisis in a car pc would be overkill

    it says less than 5 watt, think it depends on the amount of memory, hard drive and what kind of usb device you have on the mobo.

    ps, that via is using an external videocard nvidia 8600, which has a processor of itself, kind of boosts the graphics.

    Yeah i know, neverless its quitte impressive to have Crisis running in a Mini itx format.

    I ordered one of these boards a few days ago to replace my VIA VB7001. Im having some compatibility issues with the VIA onboard sound & centrafuse+visteon HD radio. I figure maybe the D945GCLF's different onboard sound might work better than the VIA for my application.

    Also I read it supports 800x480 which is nice for my lilliput 7". Hopefully it turns out to be a decent board, considering it was only like $79 shipped.

    Im planning to use my VB7001 for a cheap HTPC box, so no real loss considering I was planning to buy a mobo for the HTPC anyway.

    Has anyone on here tried this board yet?

    came across this:

    True, but I think my 3.5" HD and the 300W PSU are making the results look much worse then they actually are. In the German review, they used it with a 3.5" HD, an ODD and an 80W DC-DC converter and achieved the following results:
    IDLE (2.5" / 3.5" HD): 25 / 30 W
    DVD playback: 36 W
    FULL LOAD: 46 W
    ACPI S3: 1.3 W
    OFF: 0.6 W
    These are much better than mine, especially at idle, suggesting my PSU is horribly inefficient at such a low load. Still, my PowerPC Mac mini draws almost the same and that's with a discrete GPU!) I'm still disappointed to see such a low-power CPU coupled with a power-hungry (yet compatible) chipset.

    1,3 watt in S3, this offers possibilities

    I have one

    I got my DC945GCLF from Newegg (69.99).

    I love the board but I am having problems coming out of Hibernation with my OPUS 120.
    The hibernation issue isn't that big a deal but it is upsetting me.
    Other than that I like the fact that doesn't take to much power and it cold boots to XP in about 12 secs. I got 2GB of ram in it, and I am using an old 40gig IDE to test it.
    It doesn't do 800x480 out of the box; It will switch but the image is all messed up.
    If anyone wants pictures of the 800x480 let me know

    Did a super pi 1M and it was coming in at 1:33 - I can live with it.
    If they make a dual core then I will be getting that.

    kp
    '98 Acura TL 3.2 >Epia M10000 >512ram >200gb >XP pro>Lilli 619> Opus 120
    TESTING as of 6/22/08 - Intel D945GCLF, 2GB RAM, 80gb HDD, XP pro SP1, same Lilli & Opus 120

    any chances to XP, any extra installed drivers, usb device, etc ....

    I just finished my first car pc, and I actually used that same board in my setup. I have to say that that board it perfect! I can not belive how fast it runs and how stable it is. I used 2GB of Corsair Value ram ($40 at newegg.com) because it requires DDR2 with SDR to run compatable with the vid card. Its not listed on the compatible list from intel, but the 1GB was so I took a chance and it works! Let me know if you have any questions about this board.
