    September 16th - Intel improves miniITX line; D945GCLF2, DG45FC - Comparison Chart

    Intel introduces new products for mobile computing; D945GCLF2 , DG45FC

    Intel’s Little Valley boards have come a long way. Initially started as a cheap fan cooled 1.3 GHz Celeron, it was then replaced by fanless version with an addition of 2 SATA ports; shortly there after, Intel reverts back to a fanned version. Each of these boards model low power consumption and a cheap price to go with it.

    Recently Intel released the Atom processor which promptly introduced the successor to the Little Valley series, the D945GCLF (Code named “Little Falls”); a 1.6 GHz ultra low power consuming board, driven by a chip the size of a dime. Increased performance, efficiency and RAM capacity makes this board more desirable.

    If you thought that was impressive you should check out the specs on the latest releases of Intel’s miniITX line. The D945GCLF2 (a.k.a. Little Falls 2) has some notable improvements over the first generation. For starters, it is a dual core Atom processor. Added functionality includes: an S-video output and pin-outs for six channel audio. If that isn’t enough for you, The DG45FC (or should I say “Flying Creek”) should give you that extra boost of power you are looking for. This little guy takes Core 2 Duo/Quad processors (socket 775) and provides up to 1333MHz FSB! 6 external USB ports plus support for 4 more, HDMI output, an e-SATA port, and onboard 7.1 Audio. Check out the specifications . These boards should tear through just about any CarPC application like a hot knife through butter.

    Intel's team expresses great excitement with the release/production of the Atom processor; they contend that such innovation will revolutionize the future of mobile computing. This leads all of us to ask the question What will they come up with next?

    Talk about this in the blog talk section . See comments on the Little Falls 2 in this thread .

    Be on the lookout for these products in the Mp3car Store Soon!

    I've been watching several threads on the "Little Falls 2" board. I have an AOpen board now that's giving me all kinds of USB problems so, and upgrade is imperative.

    I'm happy to try out the first one you folks get in stock.

    Hmm, i wonder if these new boards can do S3 sleep? The D201GLY/2/2A series could only do S4 hibernate. Huge upgrade if they can (for applications other than CarPC's especially).

    After speaking with Shaun this weekend about this, I'm now leaning towards the Flying Creek as well. Hard to say no to 10 USB ports!

    Here's a question for the mp3Car guys. Are you planning to or, would you consider, selling a MB/processor/fan package with the Flying Creek, rather than just the board itself?

    since I have a micro atx case, im going with the micro-atx version. http://www.intel.com/products/deskto...D-overview.htm Since I already have a core 2 duo 1.86GHZ 1066MHZ FSB, 4 MB L2 E6320 processor In my current intel board.The biggest reason for me to switch to this board is. good on-board audio, souldnt need to use my current usb SB soundcard which suck right now( driver issues, slow boot, ect) Then the dvi- and hdmi outputs for video. I can get this board for $110.00
