    Intel D945GCLF (with integrated Atom 1.6Ghz CPU)

    Hi

    I wanted to upgrade my mobo, and i wanted to know if any of you guys have already tried this motherboard.

    It looks interesting

    Intel D945GCLF (with integrated Atom 1.6Ghz CPU)



    The Atom-CPU is a perfect basis for a low-cost system. It works very energy saving and therfor is perfect for mobile usage. But also can be used as a server, Car-PC or Multimedia solutions.

    Atom-CPU mainly was developed for the upcoming „Mobile Internet Devices“ (MID), which are fielded between notebooks and cell phones. „The processors were equipped in 45nm production with the worlds smallest transistors“, said Intels Vice President Sean Maloney.

    As IT-world currently is crying for „GreenIT“ schreit, this mainboard can be the answer. For example Intel was able to reduce the power consumption of the CPU from precessor D201GLY2 from 20W to 2.05W, which is really incredible ! Here other mainboards can not compete with !

    Name D945GCLF

    I'm just looking to something that can replace my actual system (see http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/gene...st1210810.html)

    I'm oriented in a intel based mini-itx motherboard with a intel 740 pentium-M. I'd like to know more on these new low wattage platforms but I can't find any benchmarks.

    This is the only one I've found:
    http://www.computerbase.de/news/hard..._silverthorne/

    It's an unofficial benchmark but really not a good result!!

    You can check cartft catalog and its available.

    Its going to be out in numerous versions.

    But competition is not sleeping

    VIA now claims Isaiah has two to four times the C7's per-clock throughput, depending on the application.

    "NVIDIA, which recently had a few choice words for Intel and its integrated graphics which it deemed "a joke", contends that it can better Intel at the low-end for desktop computers. NVIDIA plans on countering Intel with cheap, but powerful chipsets, graphics solutions, and processors with the help of VIA.

    During NVIDIA's financial analyst meeting today, the company revealed plans for what it calls "The World's Most Affordable Vista Premium PC". The platform use a VIA Isaiah processor coupled with an integrated NVIDIA chipset. NVIDIA reckons that the Isaiah + NVIDIA IGP combination is good for a total of 36 GFLOPS in comparison to a mere 6.4 GFLOPS for a comparable Celeron-based system with an Intel 945 IGP/ICH4 chipset.

    NVIDIA also claims that its platform will be Windows Vista Premium capable, support Blu-ray HD and DX10, and cost less than $45.

    Most would have written off VIA when thinking solely of its current C7-M processors. However, the upcoming Isaiah processor architecture promises performance that is comparable to or exceeds figures put up by Intel's current Celeron processors. Early CrystalMark benchmarks for a 1.0GHz Isaiah show it to be 280% faster in ALU performance and 190% faster in FPU performance than a comparable C7-M. The performance figures also show Isaiah to be comparable in performance to Celeron-M and Pentium-M processors of similar clock speeds.

    The real test, however, will be to see how Isaiah stacks up to Intel's new Diamondville-based Atom processors which are destined for low-cost desktops and notebooks which are typically powered by Celeron processors. We don't yet have performance figures for any of Intel's Atom processors at the moment, but let's hope that for NVIDIA and VIA's sake that the new platform will be able to back up NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang's "We're Going to Open a Can of Whoop ***" comment."

    Yay for competition, $45 mini-itx motherboards are going to be great.

    Have they released the power consumption specs for the isaiah?

    The VIA Isaiah may be mightier than the Atom processor but it consumes more power. 25W TDP at 2.0GHz

    But there will be versions at 1.6 also and i bet they are under 20watts.
    Its today standards but with better power.

    And i think wikipedia is not an up to date article.

    the boards total power usage seems similar to the celeron based boards, which are about 37W.

    that processor might only use 2W of power, tho i guess the total usage looks like about 10W on average lower than the little valley ones. wonder if you really need the fan then on the processor.

    found it for 56,89 incl.BTW (VAT)
    http://moederborden.centralpoint.nl/...-512k-533-mhz/

    from the intel site:
    Get a new range of performance-packed, power-efficient devices with excellent performance enabled by all new hafnium-infused 45nm high-k silicon technology
    Increase energy efficiency in smaller more compact designs with a thermal design power specification ranging from subwatt to 2.5 watts for mobile devices
    Extend battery life in select devices with an incredibly low idle power as low as 30 mW allowing the device to stay powered on while also conserving energy


    So its not as quick as the celeron board, but the advantage would be to be able to keep it in standby for a few days.
