    I know I looked into one of the MSI Fuzzy boards, it gave power specs which seemed to be acceptable. Finding that detailed of info is unfortunately difficult.

    Power specs for a motherboard are pretty similar across the board. CPU, video chipset and onboard devices make the lions share of the power draw.
    Look at those to determine power draw of your system.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    The problem is when power is allocated in weird ways. The LF2 with its excessive 5V draw being an obvious example. I don't know if anyone has measured the draw of the individual rails on an Ion board to see if it also draws a lot of 5V, or if it is more of the standard 12V.

    fast bootup

    I know it's not ION, but the Zotac 9300 boots off of an SSD in 8 seconds - from pressing the power button to a Windows XP SP3 desktop. The BIOS is blazing fast. I'm guessing the Zotac Ion motherboard would be slower due to processor speed, but maybe it's still pretty fast if it has a similar BIOS?

    Atom 330 boot times....

    Cold boot up = why worry??
    Resume from S3 (not hibernation) = 2-3 seconds

    Current draw in S3 sleep with a USB slot load DVD drive (powered by a power harness from the M2), a space navigator, a 7 port USB hub (with external power), USB BT dongle etc etc = less than 50mA. At that rate you could let the car sit for weeks without worrying (disclaimer: I have a BMW 740, which has a fairly substantial battery). And the M2 will shut down the CarPC completely if the battery voltage falls too low.

    I end up "rebooting/cold booting" my CarPC, maybe once a month or so.

    8 sec? wow! is it real boot, or simple sleep / hibernation? if its real boot, then is it a base SP3 windows, or lightened version?

    My DG45FC is so slow booting.

    25.8 sec until the beep. (including about 5sec it takes from M4 to start the thing), so to be fair is like 20 secs.

    15.2 Win7 resume from hibernation.
    total: 41s.

    Cold boot:

    5 sec. M4
    20.7 BIOS
    32s. Win7 32
    total: 57.7s. from IGN on. Not good, thanks to this Intel Bios.

    Fully loaded with all USB ports, GPS, bluetooth, Camera, JoyCon, etc.

    So yeah, I'd love to try a good and fast Atom board for my other car.

    This is the board i'm currently using. Bios is quite quick compared to the intel bios.

    resume from hibernation quite fast, but wasn't fast enough for me. Currently using it with s3 hybrid sleep.
