    HaHa, don't I know you feom somewhere, Beanie? Thanks Mate!

    I was looking hard at the new Asus Atom board, but this sure seems nice to me. Guess I'll give it some time for the reviews to pop up and some real-world experience to develop.

    Cheers!

    Hehe - you're a funny man

    Hey, I will do a good review on this, let's see how it goes, as my current 9300 WiFi-ITX Zotac has issues with fan-speed control resuming from Hib, and I hope these boys have sorted that on the H55.

    Will keep you posted!

    power consumption is the only drawback. if your parts can handle the extra 60w or so, and you dont care about battery runtime, then its not even a question to get the h55 with a real cpu. atoms only shine in battery life

    Phillip, did you get this board from an AU dealer, or did you pick it up from an O/S store?

    Just wondering, this might be an interesting upgrade....

    looking forward to a review as well but for HTPC / mediocre gaming...

    torn between zotac 9300 with sli or h55 with dedicated GFX card...

    Heya Chester,
    I grabbed it of a reputable dealer of Ebay in the USA. They were supposed to have shipped on Friday, but I see the tracking number indicated it was posted on the 1st only - no biggie, I should have it maybe end this week, otherwise early next week.

    I have the i3 530 cpu twiddling it's thumbs, together with the dual-channel ram.

    I do not believe that my 150W PicoPSU/Carneitx combo will have any issues powering this setup, as it's doing a great job on my existing Zotac 9300 WiFi-ITX setup, with zero issues.

    Actually, the power-consumption on the new setup should be lower due to the on-die graphics.

    If you want too, I can PM you the Ebay seller's link, but it appears they're out of stock.

    It might be best waiting another few days for the local boys to get their stock, as pricing would be competitive I think - mine came in at AUD $205 inclusive of shipping...

    edit:
    @ Sleepyzomby: You may find that the 9300 onboard graphics might perform bettewr than the Clarkedale chip...and both boards can accept pcie graphics....go for whichever solution suits your application best.

    *noted thankx

    maybe the h55 will drive down the cost of the 9300... thats the deal breaker $$$

    unfortunately, real world bench tests show then even though a slight amount of current is saved by using on-die graphics, it doesnt make a difference for two reasons... the first is about the memory controller or something still being on the motherboard, so a potential power savings point just isnt there (not all the graphics system is on the cpu) but even moreso, its the addition of hyperthreading that kills the efficiency. as a result, the i3 actually sucks up a little more power then its previous generation, however the real world performance is outstanding. in a class of its own, for sure.

    This is looking good. I guess no on-board graphics on the i7? I have an E8550 here getting dust, waiting to see if I was going to buy the Zotac i-E for my carputer, but now this...What would be a good upgrade from the E8550, the i3 or i5 (Wattage x CPU speed).
