Point of View's ION board pixellized

Comes with PCI-Express x16 slot

We managed to score a picture of Point of View's ION motherboard and it's quite different compared to the Zotac models. This just shows the freedom Nvidia gave to its partners when it comes to motherboard design and features.

The POV mini-ITX ION motherboard is based on Nvidia's MCP7A-ION chipset and can be equipped with either an Intel Atom 230 or 330 CPU. It has two SO-DIMM memory slots that support up to 2GB of 667/800 memory. Point of View has decided to include a PCI-Express x16 slot which is kind of useless, as pairing this platform with a more powerful PCI-Express graphics card is just pointless.

As you can see from the picture below, this board will need a standard PSU as it has a 24-pin power connector. The rest of the features include four SATA ports, a Realtek ALC662 5.1-channel audio chip with optical SPDIF output, six USB ports of which two are via a header, DVI, D-Sub and HDMI outputs and Gigabit LAN. The ION chipset and the Atom processor are cooled by separate heatsinks.

Considering the features, this board could end up cheaper than Zotac's ION motherboard, but we still have to wait a bit to find out what the retail price will be.
