    Intel Penryn 10w CPUs

    Anyone know of any mini-ITX CPU or board/combo that includes a 10w Penryn chip? There are motherboards that support Penryn, but the ultra low-power chips I have seen are all BGA (ball-grid array) embedded to the motherboard. The 18w Arrandale chips would be nice too.

    Why the Penryn - it's a bit old?
    And I suspect manufacturers didn't have the balls.

    There seem to be various Arrandales though, and they are current. (Or were.)

    Those CPUs are targeted at laptop manufacturers and designed to be integrated onto the motherboard, much like the Atom.
    If there is a motherboard that accommodates a Penryn, expect it to be pricey, regardless of form factor.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    What's this "old" business? It's in new laptops and it's the only fast architecture that runs at 10w. Arrandale would be good to, if you know of any, but it's 80% more power.

    Still looking...

    The Penryns are of 2008 vintage...
    The Arrans are 2010.

    But CPU consumption is irrelevant on its own....
    By that I mean it's with the mobo combined (and then application etc), I'm not commenting on core performance. (Is that considered a pun?)

    Dont forget the arrandale has much(all?) of the northbridge, including the graphics inside that 18w. So it's not really fair to say 10w vs 18w, and I bet that the penryn northbrige+IGP uses more than 8w on it's own. Why not go for arrande, and it's even faster too
