ASUS designs AMD mini-board

Written by Nick Farell


Mini ITX has Ontario inside
Asus has revealed that it's designing a mini-ITX board with AMD's first low-power Fusion chip, Ontario on board.

We are guessing that the beast will end up in some home entertainment systems, but who knows. It is possible that the chip will be equal to  Athlon II X2 250U, but with a DirectX 11 graphics chip built in it should end up with just 18W under the bonnet.

If it can manage this spec then there will be a viable alternative  to Atom in the mini-ITX market. Asus is keeping details of performance or the boards eventual use close to its chest, although Bit-Tech has clearly been trying. All Asus will say is that it is early days for its board it would not even talk about the possibly of an AMD based EePC.
