Inno3D prepares its i-Chill ION motherboard

Great for an HTPC

Inno3D is apparently jumping on the Nvidia ION bandwagon as well, with two mini-ITX motherboards. Inno3D's ION based motherboard was previously shown at Computex.

According to Hexus.net, there will be two versions of the motherboard, one with a single-core Intel Atom N270 and another with a dual-core Atom 330 processor. These motherboards are the best that you can get with an Atom, and Zotac has shown practically the same design a while back. Both versions will pack Nvidia's Geforce 9400M integrated graphics, clocked at 450MHz for the core and 1100MHz for those 16 stream processors.

The iChill ION is cooled by a heatsink that covers most of the motherboard and it also comes with an additional 6cm fan for extra cooling. Just like Zotac's ION solution, this one also has a mini PCIe slot that comes with preinstalled Draft-N Wi-Fi. The rest of the features include three SATA ports with internal SATA power cords, and two DDR2 DIMM slots with support for up to 8GB of DDR2 667/800 memory.

The already small backpanel is tightly packed with one obsolete PS/2 keyboard port, DVI, D-Sub and HDMI outputs, six USB 2.0 ports, one Ethernet port, eSATA, audio, WiFi antenna and plug for the bundled 90W external power supply.

Unfortunately the price or the availability date haven't been announced, and same as Zotac's ION solutions, these boards might end up as some of the best ITX HTPC solutions on the market.
