VIA announced the world smallest native x86 mainboard measuring at 100mm x 72m. It is about 75% smaller then mini-ITX boards.
Just for comparison, here are the current small form factors.
|VIA Form Factor||Dimensions|
|Mini-ITX||17cm x 17cm|
|Nano-ITX||12cm x 12cm|
|Pico-ITX||10cm x 7.2cm|
The Pico-ITX form factor is all about VIA's focus on enhancing power
efficiency. It has been designed to be
powered by VIA's energy efficient processor platforms, such as the VIA C7 or VIA Eden processor, and based
around one of the new breed of VIA's system media processors. The board includes
all-in-one digital media IGP chipsets such as the VX700, which combines core logic, multimedia, connectivity and storage
technologies within a highly integrated single-chip package.
This board will surely find its way into many new solutions. We hope to see it soon.
